The MFF's Expanding Mission
On behalf of the entire Mary Ferrell Foundation team, it is our pleasure to introduce you to the new mission, focus, and look of www.maryferrell.org.
Since our launch in November, 2005, we have become the largest searchable electronic archive of information on the assassination of John F. Kennedy and its historical context. We have amassed nearly one million pages of documents and reports from a variety of public and private sources, and are dedicated to bringing them to your fingertips.
With the fortieth anniversary of the assassinations of Martin Luther King and Robert F. Kennedy upon us, we have decided that the time was right to expand the focus of the Foundation to include those tragedies as well. Like the JFK assassination, these events were dramatic turning points in our nation's history - turning points for which the "official" stories are sorely lacking.
While our focus may be expanding, our commitment to providing unparalleled access via our vast electronic archive as well as intelligent discussion of these cases is unchanged and unwavering.
New document collections include:
HSCA appendix volumes on the King assassination
FBI MURKIN files on the King assassination
Sirhan Sirhan trial transcript and appeal documents
FBI Los Angeles Field office files on RFK assassination
Lawrence Teeter's Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus on behalf of Sirhan Sirhan
We are also currently scanning the voluminous "Special Unit Senator" collection. Additionally, our ongoing JFK records digitization project will continue throughout 2008, with the addition of further FBI and CIA files.We hope you enjoy the new look and feel of the website, and join us as we continue our dedication to exploring the deeper stories behind the national crises and tragedies that shape our society.
