LBJ Phone Calls - November 1963
This set of transcripts, along with selected audio recordings, were made
during the November days immediately following the assassination of President Kennedy.
Some of them concern the formation of the so-called "Warren Commission", which was formally
announced on November 29, 1963.
A few phone calls with FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover discuss the early results of
FBI investigations into the death of President Kennedy. Ths first of these, recorded
at 10:01 AM on November 23, less than 24 hours after the assassination, appears to have
been erased. A transcript survived the apparent erasure--in it, Hoover tells Johnson that
tapes of Oswald contacting the Soviet Embassy in Mexico City don't match the voice of
the living Oswald. Hoover says "it appears that there is a second person who was at the
Soviet Embassy down there."
