JOHN F. KENNEDY AUTOPSY PHOTOS, X-RAYS SOUGHT IN FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT LAWSUIT Suit Charges Archives with 'Improperly Withholding' Records WHAT: News Conference WHO: D. Mark Katz, author/photo historian Theresa A. Amato, attorney for Public Citizen WHEN: Wednesday, April 29, 10:30 a.m. WHERE: 2000 P St., N.W., Washington, 7th Floor WHY: Nearly 200 photographs and X-rays of the body of John F.
Kennedy have been improperly withheld from the public by the National Archives, according to a lawsuit to be filed on Wednesday, April 29, by author and photo historian Mark Katz. Katz is being represented by Public Citizen's Theresa Amato in a Freedom of Information Act action.
The photographs and X-rays, taken by U.S. government agency personnel, were deeded by the Kennedy family to the Archives in 1966, with the expressed proviso prohibiting their general release until after President Kennedy's children have died. The disclosure of the Kennedy assassination material sought by Congress specifically does not include these autopsy records. Participants at the news conference will discuss both the legal strategy for seeking the release of these controversial records, along with their significance to researchers and historians.
