Missouri State University to host JFK Panel
Upcoming conference offers range of topics for history buffs
Heavy-hitter speakers and many topics will be featured at event
by Steve Pokin
September 17, 2012
One of the three featured speakers is Douglas Brinkley, history professor at Rice University in Houston and author of more than 20 books, including his most recent, “Walter Cronkite: An Eyewitness to American History,” published in May.
Brinkley considers noted historian Stephen Ambrose his mentor. Ambrose, who died in 2002, authored “Band of Brothers” and twice was a featured speaker at the conference.
Brinkley will speak about Cronkite at 1 p.m.
Friday.At 2:15 p.m. Brinkley will moderate a two-hour panel discussion titled “What We Now Know About the Kennedy Assassination.” The panel includes four scholars who have devoted much of their professional lives to writing about the assassination.
They are David Kaiser, an author who teaches at the Naval War College; Max Holland, the lead producer of the National Geographic Channel’s 2011 documentary “JFK: The Lost Bullet”; Gerald McKnight, professor emeritus of Hood College in Maryland, who wrote “Breach of Trust: How the Warren Commission Failed the Nation and Why”; and David Wrone, professor emeritus at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, who wrote “The Zapruder Film: Re-framing the Kennedy Assassination.”
James Giglio, an MSU history professor emeritus and conference founder, organized the panel. He said it’s one of the few times a history conference has focused on the JFK assassination.
When asked if there was new information on the topic, Giglio mentioned Holland’s 2011 documentary and said, “Please attend the session and you’ll find out.”
Sounds like a Warren Commision apologist slurp fest
Ouch! That hurts, Bob.
Romney did it.
