Formation and operation of the Warren Commission

    This section will be devoted to the procedural aspects of the Warren Commission rather than to its conclusions. The two are related, of course, and often overlap considerably. For that reason, some of the articles listed here will be cross-listed in "Reactions to the Warren Report" and in "Legal Views of the Warren Commission."
