On the morning of November 22, 1963, Texas School Book Depository employee Buell Wesley Frazier gave fellow employee Lee Harvey Oswald a ride to work. The rest, as they say, is history. Frazier will be the featured guest at the July installment of The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza’s monthly Living History Series. The program will be presented on Saturday, July 13, at 2 p.m. on the Museum’s seventh floor. Admission is included with paid Sixth Floor Museum admission or $10 for the program only. Seating is limited and advance tickets are recommended. Tickets can be purchased at www.jfk.org up to 24 hours before the program.
Frazier occasionally drove Oswald to work at the Texas School Book Depository from his home in Irving, and did so on the morning of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination. Frazier witnessed the assassination and was detained and questioned extensively by Dallas investigators.
The Living History Series is one of many special exhibits, programs, enhancements and collaborations the Museum is presenting in commemoration of the upcoming 50th anniversary of President Kennedy in November. The monthly series links the past to the present through firsthand accounts from reporters, law enforcement officials, doctors, military personnel and everyday citizens who witnessed the assassination or other historic events of the early 1960s. Each of the presenters in the monthly series has contributed to The Sixth Floor Museum’s ongoing Oral History Project. The collection includes more than 1,000 candid, informal interviews that recount the life and death of President John F. Kennedy, the history and culture of Dallas, and the 1960s. Anyone with vivid memories of President Kennedy, the assassination or other historic events of the era are encouraged to contact firstname.lastname@example.org to contribute to the collection.
The Sixth Floor Museum is located at 411 Elm Street in Dallas’ Historic West End. For more information, go to www.jfk.org or call 214.747.6660.
