The United States Congress asked RIT’s School of Photographic Arts and Sciences for assistance in the mid 1970s federal investigation of President John F. Kennedy and Lee Harvey Oswald’s assassinations.
Two of the principal investigators, Leslie Stroebel ’42 (photo science), professor emeritus of the School of Photographic Arts and Sciences, and Andrew Davidhazy, RIT department chair of imaging and photographic technology, will present their findings during a videotape presentation and question and answer session. The free presentation is 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 16, in the Neblette Conference room, Frank E. Gannett Building.
The House Select Committee on Assassinations asked Ronald Francis, RIT faculty member in the photo school for 17 years, Stroebel and Davidhazy to examine the photographic work originally conducted by the FBI and CIA.
Stroebel gave a presentation at RIT in 1990 on the professors’ findings, and it will be replayed via videotape. Davidhazy will take questions from the audience.
The lecture is presented by The Technical Photography Student Association and the student chapter of the Society for Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers.
