(Testimony of Dr. Malcolm Perry)

Representative Ford.
How long after the President was brought in before you went to trauma room No. 1?
Dr. PERRY. That I don't know either. My last recollection in regard to time was approximately 12:30 when I was having lunch prior to rounds, and Dr. Jones picked up the page and as we went downstairs I took off my watch and dropped it in my coat pocket, rather expecting to do some kind of procedure, and I took off my coat and I never looked at the clock until afterwards.
Mr. Mccloy.
One more question, I want to get clear.
The extent to which you examined Governor Connally's wounds, as I gather, you were asked to stand by.
Dr. PERRY. That is right, sir.
Mr. Mccloy.
Rather than to be involved in a close examination of the wounds.
Dr. PERRY. That is right, sir.
Mr. Mccloy.
So you are not generally familiar?
Dr. PERRY. No, sir; all I did was come into the operating room, put on a scrub suit, cap and mask, and looked at the thigh wound before Dr. Shires started the operation. That was the extent of the episode into the wound, and I stayed there while he carried it down to the lower portion of the wound and indicated there was no serious injury and I left the operating room at that point.
Mr. Mccloy.
And you didn't see the other two wounds?
Dr. PERRY. I didn't see the other wounds at all, sir.

Representative FORD Thank you very much, Dr. Perry. Your testimony has been most helpful.
(Whereupon, at 11:45 a.m., the President's Commission recessed.)
