The President’s Commission on the Assassination of President Kennedy, known unofficially as the Warren Commission, named after its chairman Chief Justice
Earl Warren, was established on November 27, 1963, by Lyndon B. Johnson to investigate the assassination of President John F. Kennedy on November 22,
1963. The commission’s 888-page final report was presented to President
Johnson on Tuesday September 24, 1964 (above) and was made public on
September 27, 1964. The controversial report concluded that Lee Harvey
Oswald acted along in the killing of Kennedy and the wounding of Texas
Governor John Connally, and that Jack Ruby also acted alone in the
murder of Oswald.
