(Testimony of Dr. William Kemp Clark)

Dr. CLARK. No; I have not.

Mr. Specter.
Have you been interviewed or discussed this matter with any Federal representative prior to today ?
Dr. CLARK. Yes, sir; I have.
Mr. Specter.
And whom did you talk to ?

Dr. CLARK. I talked to an FBI agent a few days after the assassination, in Mr. Jack Price's office.
Mr. Specter.
And who is Mr. Price, for the record at this point?
Dr. CLARK. He is .the administrator of Parkland Memorial Hospital. This agent asked me if I had recovered any missiles or fragments of missiles from the President's body. I said I did not, and he asked me if I knew of anyone in
Parkland Hospital who had recovered such evidence and I assured him I did not.
Mr. Specter.
Did he ask you anything further?
Dr. CLARK. No, sir.
Mr. Specter.
Did you tell him anything further?

Dr. CLARK. No, sir. I offered to answer any questions he might have asked and he said that was all he wished to know.
Mr. SPECTER. And did you talk to any other representative of the Federal Government at any time before today?
Dr. CLARK. Yes; I talked to a member of the Secret Service approximately a .month after the assassination. I talked to him on ,two occasions, once by phone, and he asked me if I had a copy of the written report submitted by Dr. Ronald Jones, and I told him I did not.
I subsequently talked to him in person. He showed me the summary that I prepared .and sent to Dr. Burkley, the same document I just identified here, and my own handwritten report of the events of the afternoon of the 22d of November. He asked me if I prepared these and I told him I had. He asked me if I had any other written records. I told him I did not. He said,
"Do you have any additional information than you have written?" I said I did not. He thanked me very much for coming.
Mr. Specter.
Have you now summarized all of the conversations you have
had with any representative of the Federal Government prior to today ?
Dr. CLARK. Yes, sir.
Mr. Specter.
And have you had any conversations with any representative of the State government prior to today ?
Dr. CLARK. No, sir.

Mr. SPECTER. Before you were sworn in to have your deposition taken, did you and I have a discussion about this matter?
Dr. CLARK. Yes, sir; a pleasant discussion of what the function of this Commission is.
Mr. Specter.
And, also, all of what I would be asking once the record was

open and we started taking your deposition ?
Dr. CLARK. Yes, sir.
Mr. SPECTER. And have we covered on the record with the court reporter transcribing all the subjects which you and I discussed informally and prior to the start of the more formal session here?
Dr. CLARK. Yes, air.
Mr. SPECTER. Do you have anything which you would care to add, which you think might possibly be helpful to the Commission in any way, Dr. Clark?
Dr. CLARK. No, sir; I'm afraid I don't.
Mr. Specter.
Thank you very much for coming. We surely appreciate it, Dr. Clark. Thank you, Dr. Clark.
Dr. CLARK. Thank you.
