Curator's Notes

William Ward Warren recorded an oral history with The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza on January 22, 2010. - Stephen Fagin, Associate Curator

Ward Warren’s film is one of the few Love Field home movies I’ve seen that shows Vice President Lyndon Johnson.  Johnson, of course, always traveled separately from the president for security reasons and was waiting for him at Love Field when Kennedy stepped off the plane.  But very few people with cameras paid him any attention, perhaps because he was a Texan who often appeared around the state and on local TV. - Gary Mack, Curator
