Gus Russo ’72, political science, traces the lesser-known tales of the Kennedy assassination in a new NBC documentary airing on Novemeber 22.
Ask Russo where he was on November 22, 1963, and he recalls it instantly. He was a student at Mount Saint Joseph High School, plunged with his fellow Roman Catholic school classmates into a deep communal grief over the assassination of John F. Kennedy.
For the past year, Russo has been asking other people to recount their memories of that tragic day for Where Were You?: America Remembers the JFK Assassination – a new NBC documentary hosted by Tom Brokaw. The interviews for that NBC special have also been compiled and edited by Russo and Harry Moses into a book with that same title published by Lyons Press.
