The Assassination Records Review Board

The Assassination Records Review Board (ARRB) was an independent federal Agency established by Congress to oversee the creation of the John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection (ARC). The Board conducted an extensive search for federal and local government records relating to the assassination of US President John F. Kennedy, and oversaw the release of these records, many of which were previously classified and unavailable for public scrutiny.

5 Fair Play Joe Backes' batch notices Fair Play was a website run by John Kelin. It featured a number of articles on the ARRB, including a long detailed series on ARRB releases, written by Joe Backes. Although there is much confusion and error in the series, it is still worth a look. The website is no longer on-line, this list links to copies of the articles available on the Wayback Machine.
