Research Memos Written by Douglas Horne

Doug Horne wrote several lengthy articles in the form of research memos while on the staff of the ARRB. Some key memos, available for reading here online, are listed below:

Chain-of-Custody Discrepancy Re: Original Copy of President John F. Kennedy's Autopsy Protocol. See also Part Two. In this two-part article, Horne traces two distinct chains of custody for President Kennedy's autopsy report. One appears to have disappeared while under Robert Kennedy's control; the version in the National Archives first appeared in the record in 1967 with no prior chain of custody.

Chain-of-Custody Study of Autopsy Photographs and X-Rays. Horne similarly analyzed anomalies in the chain of custody of autopsy photographs and X-rays.

Questions Regarding Supplementary Brain Examination(s) Following the Autopsy on President John F. Kennedy. This memo laid the groundwork for Horne's theory that there were two separate examinations of two different brains following JFK's autopsy, and that extant photographs are not of JFK's brain. The Washington Post covered this story.

Unanswered Questions Raised by the HSCA's Analysis and Conclusions Regarding the Camera Identified by the Navy and the Department of Defense as the Camera Used at President Kennedy's Autopsy. Horne discusses memos left behind by the HSCA which show that it learned that the Navy camera and lens said to have taken the JFK autopsy photos did not in fact match the photos. The HSCA concealed this result and the working papers from those tests are now missing.

About the Book

(from the back cover)

Douglas Horne served on the staff of the President John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Review Board (ARRB) during the final three years of its four-year lifespan, from 1995 to 1998, and is the first U.S. government official involved with the medical evidence to allege a coverup in President Kennedy's autopsy, and in the creation of the autopsy photographs and x-rays.

This book, the product of over 13 years of writing and research, provides the best explanation yet offered of the true nature of the medical coverup in the assassination of John F. Kennedy, and does so in meticulous detail, with scrupulous use of primary source material. It incorporates the latest information---much of it new evidence not revealed elsewhere---gleaned from the ARRB's depositions and interviews of medical witnesses, conducted from 1996 to 1998.

With precise accuracy, and with a relentless focus on the massive fraud uncovered in the official records of the 35th President's assassination, Horne presents a persuasive case that the assassination of JFK was an "inside job," a true coup d'etat in America, that was ruthlessly and brazenly covered up by those who 'broke the back of the American century' in Dallas on November 22, 1963.
