Author to Speak
Jim DiEugenio has written two books on the Kennedy assassination. Destiny Betrayed (1992) was the first positive reconsideration of the Jim Garrison investigation in a generation. The Assassinations (2003, co-edited with Lisa Pease) analyzed the murders of RFK, MLK, and Malcolm X, but devoted most its pages to the newly released ARRB documents in the JFK case. He and Lisa also edited the journal Probe (1993-2000) which focused on the releases of the ARRB and new developments in the King and RFK cases. Jim has an MA in Contemporary American History from California State University Northridge. He was asked by Oliver Stone to do a commentary track on the expanded DVD version of his film "JFK." DiEugenio has most recently garnered praise for his critiques of Vincent Bugliosi's book, "Reclaiming History." His highly anticipated talk will be on, "Reclaiming History Meets the New Hollywood, or Did Forrest Gump Read a Book?"

Banquet Speaker Peggy Codella
Peggy Cordella's brother was Kennedy collector, Robert L. White, who was a friend of Evelyn Lincoln. He came to Dallas yearly and even had a display of JFK memorabilia in Dallas back in 2002. He passed away in 2003 and she would like to keep his memory and admiration for JFK alive by bringing a personal glimpse into Robert's life.
Robert L. White specialized in rare documents, historically significant items, and personal artifacts, and dedicated his life to the passionate assembly of the Robert L. White Private Kennedy Collection - a truly unique and all encompassing testimonial to JFK's personal and political history. Robert's lifetime course was set as a child's hobby - prompted by his father and a Lassie television episode on collecting autographs. A youthful Robert White, already fascinated with history and autographs, decided to write to Evelyn Lincoln, John F. Kennedy's Personal Secretary, and requested a signature from the President. Several weeks later, a letter arrived from the White House which contained a facsimile signature of John F. Kennedy. Even though Robert knew it was not an original signature, this cherished first item formed the seed for what was to become the largest, most comprehensive and finest privately-owned John F. Kennedy collection of artifacts and documents in the world.
John F. Kennedy has countless, world-wide admirers to whom the 35th President of the United States of America will always be remembered as charismatic and special. The events of November 22, 1963 horrified the world. Along with the rest of the country Robert White was devastated. On that day, this 15-year old dedicated a page in his journal to the President, noting "...What happened today will be down in history books forever. And I will never forget it."
