<!--EZCODE AUTOLINK START--><a href=""></a><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK END--><br><br>The investigation by New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison into the assassination of President Kennedy, upon which the film JFK was based, remains controversial decades later.<br><br>A large documentary record was left behind by this investigation, which sheds light both on the investigation itself and its subject, the JFK assassination. The records available on this web site currently include the transcript of the trial of Clay Shaw and the grand jury records which were made public in the 1990s.<br><br>The AARC sells a CD-ROM, produced by History Matters, which contains these two bodies of transcripts, as well as related documents, along with sophisticated search tools.

Kennedy. The arrest followed an investigation by the office of New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison, and the murder of prime suspect David Ferrie. Nearly two years later, the case went to trial (see the Orleans Parish Grand Jury transcripts for grand jury testimony during the intervening period).<br><br>The trial opened with witnesses from Clinton, Louisiana, who described an event wherein they witnessed Shaw and Oswald together. There was also testimony on the question of whether Clay Shaw was Clay Bertrand, an alias for the man Dean Andrews told the Warren Commission tried to hire him to defend Oswald after the assassination. Ultimately, the case for a murder conspiracy hung on the testimony of Perry Russo, who described being at a party with Shaw, Ferrie, and Oswald, in which a murder plot involving triangulation of gunfire was discussed.<br><br>The trial lasted about three weeks, and went to the jury on the evening of February 28, 1969. In the wee hours of March 1, almost exactly two years after his arrest, Clay Shaw was acquitted.<br><br>Index to Transcripts        (PDF: 332 K)<br>February 6        (PDF: 932 K)<br>February 6, part b        (PDF: 2135 K)<br>February 6, part c        (PDF: 1182 K)<br>February 6, part d        (PDF: 6473 K)<br>February 7        (PDF: 2211 K)<br>February 10        (PDF: 10202 K)<br>February 11        (PDF: 11524 K)<br>February 12        (PDF: 2028 K)<br>February 12, part b        (PDF: 1046 K)<br>February 12, part c        (PDF: 3554 K)<br>February 12, part d        (PDF: 2251 K)<br>February 12, part e        (PDF: 1481 K)<br>February 12, part f        (PDF: 718 K)<br>February 12, part g        (PDF: 1816 K)<br>February 13        (PDF: 7224 K)<br>February 13, part b        (PDF: 2018 K)<br>February 14        (PDF: 6106 K)<br>February 14, part b        (PDF: 6429 K)<br>February 15        (PDF: 4538 K)<br>February 17        (PDF: 1041 K)<br>February 17, part b        (PDF: 1472 K)<br>February 17, part c        (PDF: 995 K)<br>February 17, part d        (PDF: 6155 K)<br>February 19        (PDF: 2014 K)<br>February 19, part b        (PDF: 9411 K)<br>February 20        (PDF: 2453 K)<br>February 21        (PDF: 5849 K)<br>February 21, part b        (PDF: 3282 K)<br>February 21, part c        (PDF: 8950 K)<br>February 22        (PDF: 2134 K)<br>February 24        (PDF: 4230 K)<br>February 24, part b        (PDF: 5905 K)<br>February 25        (PDF: 1749 K)<br>February 25, part b        (PDF: 7437 K)<br>February 25, part c        (PDF: 2776 K)<br>February 25, part d        (PDF: 1221 K)<br>February 26        (PDF: 4393 K)<br>February 26, part b        (PDF: 737 K)<br>February 26, part c        (PDF: 1063 K)<br>February 27        (PDF: 460 K)<br>February 27, part b        (PDF: 3598 K)<br>February 27, part c        (PDF: 1564 K)<br>February 27, part d        (PDF: 735 K)<br>February 28        (PDF: 8150 K)<br>February 28, part b        (PDF: 2711 K)<br>February 28, part c        (PDF: 7385 K)<br>February 28, part d        (PDF: 967 K)<br>February 28, part e        (PDF: 2200 K)<br>----------------------------------------<br><br>Orleans Parish Grand Jury Transcripts<br><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK START--><a href=""></a><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK END--><br><br>The Orleans Parish Grand Jury transcripts consist of testimony taken during 1967, 1968, and early 1969, as part of the Garrison investigation into the murder of President John F. Kennedy. These transcripts were ordered destroyed in the early 1970s by Garrison's successor as District Attorney, Harry Connick.<br><br>But the man who was supposed to destroy them, Gary Raymond, instead hid them in a garage for over two decades. Then in 1995, Raymond arranged for journalist Richard Angelico to pass these grand jury transcripts on to the Assassination Records Review Board. Connick, still the DA, convicted both men of contempt of court, and demanded that the ARRB return the transcripts.<br><br>The ARRB, meanwhile, was still seeking records (5 drawers of files) of Garrison investigation files held by Connick. The ARRB won its battle with Connick, and both the grand jury transcripts presented here and the investigation files are now part of the JFK Collection at the National Archives.
