DALLAS, Oct. 11 (UPI) -- Former Warren Commission staffers, who investigated President John F. Kennedy's death, convened at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, the school said.

President Lyndon B. Johnson convened the Warren Commission days after the Nov. 22, 1963, assassination of Kennedy. Its 889-page report, delivered in September 1964, continues to spark debate, controversy and conspiracy theories.

The presentation, "The Work of the Warren Commission, Half a Century On," convened Friday on the SMU campus, and was open to the public.

"This is the first time this elite group will publicly discuss their work," SMU law professor William Bridge said.

The event is part of a yearlong collaboration among SMU, the George W. Bush Presidential Library and museum, and The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Kennedy's death in Dallas.

The commission concluded Lee Harvey Oswald shot Kennedy to death from his perch on the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository as the presidential motorcade wended its way past.
