“A Look at the Oswald Photo at 50”

October 4, 2013

A panel discussion of the iconic photograph of Jack Ruby shooting Lee Harvey Oswald will be at 3 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 24, in O’Donnell Auditorium of SMU's Owen Arts Center, 6100 Hillcrest Ave. The event is free and open to the public.

The discussion will feature Hugh Aynesworth, Dallas-Fort Worth media authority on the JFK assassination; Bob Jackson, the former SMU student who took the Pulitzer Prize-winning photograph; and Jim Leavelle, a former Dallas homicide detective who was escorting Oswald at the time he was shot.

Carolyn Barta, SMU’s Meadows Foundation Distinguished Teaching Professor, will moderate the session.
