Jack D. White (born 1927) is a photographer and former advertising executive whose interest in the assassination of President John F. Kennedy led him to collect photographs and slides related to the event.
The materials in this collection include slides and photographs from White's personal collection. The slide carousels contain images - and, in some cases, scripts - of presentations White gave to various audiences on his work analyzing photographs of the assassination and its major players. Additional slides that contain sensitive material (such as photographs taken during postmortems for both President Kennedy and Lee Harvey Oswald as well as stills from the Zapruder Film) have been omitted from this digital archive. To access those materials, contact the Poage Legislative Library at email@example.com.

He was also a consultant on the Oliver Stone film, JFK. As a result of his interest in the Kennedy assassination, White published two videotapes on his photographic studies of the assassination.
