That is my Father, Jimmy Darnell. He may have had a cigarette, but I'm almost 100% certain that he didn't have notes. He kept everything, right down to the video logs from that week, and we've never seen or heard about any notes.

Nellie,

Are you saying that that's your father, running from left to right with something white in his right jacket pocket in the Tina Towner film?

Thanks,

-- Tom

Thanks for the suggestion, Charles! We are actually planning on going to the museum this weekend. My Mom worked for the Dallas PD at the time and was present for all the chaos of the aftermath, so she may be able to contribute to the Oral History Collection as well.

I'm almost positive it is him. I wish the pic was a little sharper, but my family thinks it's him and it would seem to match up with the path he took that day.

Thank you.

I think it's him, too.

Nope, way before I was born. However, it was an event that I heard a lot about growing up So much so, that I became somewhat desensitized to the significance of my Dads role in the aftermath as it pertains to capturing parts of the event and the subsequent reporting of it. My Dad's best friend was one of the other reporters/cameramen on the scene, so I've been surrounded by JFK stories my entire life. I honestly did not know how many people there were out there that are still so interested in his film until I started running across things online after he passed away. He was super humble, gave very few interviews over the years, and only participated in one or two panels. He didn't love the attention. But he was a journalist that worked with the highest level of integrity and left a great legacy.
Nellie, thank you for joining the forum. You wrote your dad's best friend was a reporter/cameraman also at the scene. If you feel comfortable could you, or would you, let us know who that friend was? Just curious. There are at least two films with your dad prominent at center frame - Don Cook's and John Martin's.

Thanks,
James

I was referring to Bob Welch. He was at the Trade Mart and then followed the motorcade to Parkland.

If you do a 6FM Oral History please bring any notes your dad had regarding the assassination. Do you have any copy of the films he took on 11/22/63?
