Book Corner: Board Selections
The AARC is proud to announce the creation of a new resource for those who are new to the study of America's political assassinations.
We begin a series of new posts by AARC Board members and associates designed to provide a basic introduction to essential books and learning materials associated with the continuing investigation of President Kennedy's assassination.
An Important Announcement:
To mark the 50th anniversary of the publication of the Warren Report, on September 26 thru 28, 2014, the AARC hosted an unprecedented gathering of prominent authorities, historical researchers, and notable personalities associated with the study of President Kennedy's assassination. Because of AARC's mission to provide public access to national records, video recordings of their presentations at the conference will be released over the course of the next several weeks. These presentations may be viewed here without charge. Full dvd sets will soon be available for purchase. Viewers are encouraged to support the work of the AARC by making a tax-exempt donation.
The Assassination Archives and Research Center was founded in 1984 to provide a permanent organization which would acquire, preserve, and disseminate information on political assassinations. The AARC is devoted to reaching the widest possible audience with this new information.
Joint Venture with the Mary Ferrell Foundation
The AARC has partnered with the Mary Ferrell Foundation, supplying nearly a million pages of AARC records for browsing and searching via the MFF website. These records include massive CIA and FBI documents received as settlement for a lawsuit brought by Mark Allen, as well as other document collections on the John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King Jr., and Robert F. Kennedy assassinations.
