The President's Commission on the Assassination of President Kennedy,
usually called the Warren Commission after its chairman Chief Justice
Earl Warren, conducted hearings in 1964 on the assassination of President
Kennedy. It issued its now-famous finding that Lee Harvey Oswald, alone
and unaided, killed President Kennedy in Dallas on November 22, 1963.
It further found that Jack Ruby's murder of Oswald, while Oswald was
in police custody, was also not part of any conspiracy.
In addition to the published 26 volumes of evidence, the released files of
the Warren Commission include over 50,000 pages of numbered documents, internal
memorandum, transcripts of Executive Sessions, and more. The testimony and
files of the Commission serve as an important base of evidence in any understanding
of the events in Dallas.
