First compiled and edited by historian Craig Ciccone in 1991, these completely revised and updated
resources are the most detailed, readily available studies of the witnesses to the assassination of
President Kennedy to date. They serve as unique and indispensible research tools, lecture aids, or
even collectors’ items.

BY CRAIG CICCONE

I first published a schematic of Dealey Plaza in 1991, which plotted the location of 297 eyewitnesses, including the occupants of approximately half of the motorcade procession. I devised and supplemented the map with a 33-page master list of witnesses the following year. The vision for the list was to include details about as many witnesses as possible, and to provide sources for the information contained in both the schematic and master list. Had I tried to incorporate those two elements on the schematic itself, I felt it would have compromised its effectiveness as a visual aid by appearing overly cumbersome.In 1996, I chose to return to this Master Witness list, hoping simply to make some minor revisions resulting in this book.

I have always intended this list to be utilized as a resource—one which had not previously been adequately constructed—for the study and comparison of eyewitness accounts at the earliest point after the assassination. While relying heavily on those immediate reactions and impressions, the list also catalogs and discusses all of the official statements and interviews given by eyewitnesses. As a result, the list serves to demonstrate—not only through what is in the record, but also what is clearly not in the record—the extreme lengths investigators undertook to avoid eliciting meaningful and complete information from witnesses.
