To be announced

January 16, 2014: Andy Davidhazy will speak on a connection to the Kennedy assassination report. Part of the talk, he notes, is ‚”a video of a lecture/presentation by [fellow] RIT Professor Leslie Stroebel on work that he and I did for the House Select Committee on assassinations. Specifically the part that considered the veracity of the Harvey Lee Oswald photographs with him holding a rifle. Both Dr. Stroebel and Dr. Francis (who was the person who headed the work but who actually did none of it) have passed on so I am the only remaining member of the team that did that work. I would be happy to discuss what we did after showing of the video of the lecture that Dr. Stroebel presented to some of RIT students and which I luckily videotaped.”TPHSMeetingNewsSept2013_img_3
