The Oswald Photo at 50

Ruby-shooting-oswald

The famous photograph of Kennedy assassin Lee Harvey Oswald being shot by Dallas nightclub owner Jack Ruby remains one of the iconic photos of the 20th century. The photograph won the Pulitzer Prize for the Dallas Times Herald, the first by a Dallas newspaper. This panel discussion will explore that photo and its impact. On the panel will be the photographer, former SMU student Bob Jackson; noted JFK assassination authority Hugh Aynesworth; and Jim Leavelle, the Dallas detective who was escorting Oswald. SMU Journalism Professor of Practice Carolyn Barta will moderate the panel.
