Mr. Holga, our walkabout photographer, is still on the hunt for Kennedy history. Just this week Mr. Holga located the final resting place for Ira J. Beers, staff photographer for The Dallas Morning News. Mr. Beers was one of two competing photographers in the basement of the Dallas Police Headquarters when Jack Ruby shot Lee Harvey Oswald. Beers had a great angle on the scene, but his photograph lacked the emotion shown in the photograph by Robert Jackson, staff photographer for the Dallas Times Herald.
