JFK Authors on 2017 Records
Message to White House: Full JFK Disclosure in 2017
In an open letter to the White House, a diverse group of JFK authors and investigators are calling on the president's lawyer to endorse complete declassification of thousands of pages of still-secret government records related to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963.
How You Can Participate
In anticipation of the scheduled release of JFK records in October 2017, the Mary Ferrell Foundation is ramping up plans to make as many of those records available online as quickly as possible upon their declassification. Interested researchers can help.
Next month we will launch a new project, one aimed at identifying the most important of the fully-withheld and currently-redacted records. In the event that next October's documents are released in paper form only, the list we create will help direct an effort to obtain and put online at MFF the most important records first. You can help us build that list.
Stay turned for an announcement of this project to create such a "high value" documents listing. In the meantime, you can use the JFK Database Explorer to become familiar with what records are going to be part of this release.
For further information about the scheduled 2017 releases and information gleaned from MFF correspondence with the National Archives, see this page.
