Josiah Thompson is author of the 1967 classic Six Seconds in Dallas: A Micro-Study of the Kennedy Assassination, the first book to discuss the evidence presented in the Zapruder film in detail. His interview with the MFF is archived as Unredacted Episode 3. Dr. Thompson provided the first essay published directly on the MFF website, Bedrock Evidence in the Kennedy Assassination, which argues forcefully that the Zapruder film is authentic. Originally a Professor of Philosophy, he has for many years now been a private detective, participating in the investigation of a number of high-profile cases, including the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing.
