The Warren Commission

Earl Warren, 1955

On this day, November 29, in 1963, one week after President John F. Kennedy was fatally shot, President Lyndon B. Johnson established the Warren Commission. Leading the investigation into the assassination was Supreme Court Chief Justice Earl Warren.

Warren served on the Supreme Court from 1953–1969. He was photographed twice during his tenure – in 1955, on assignment for Collier’s Magazine, and in 1963. See the details.
