Names Sometimes Associated With JFK Assassination Found in Mississippi Sovereignty Commission Files

Looking for names sometimes associated for various reasons with the JFK assassination?? Well, I can’t say look no further — because I have the ultimate guide. However — Here’s a partial list of some pretty interesting names that can be found in the Mississippi Sovereignty Commission files. (I will update this list as I run into more names.)

I think it’s quite fascinating that any records on these folks were collected, since most weren’t Mississippi residents. Anyway, I’ve included one or two links for each name. None are particularly representative of what is in the Commission’s treasure chest; But take a look; there are some real gems.

Remember, when using these files look for all sorts of spellings and combinations of names. Even Guy Banister’s contract employee, John D. Sullivan, spelled the old coot’s name with two n’s! Also, all of the files are not thoroughly indexed, so names can appear in reports but not be found through the main index. SUSAN
