Meet Thursday, January 16 at
Barnes and Noble Booksellers, Pittsford Plaza, 3349 Monroe Ave., at 7:30 p.m.
Photographic Analysis for the Kennedy Assassination Report
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 Lee Harvey 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.”
