(Testimony of Dr. Adolph Hartung , Jr. Giesecke)

Dr. GIESECKE. No, I think that pretty well covers what I did.

Mr. Specter.
May I thank you very much, Dr. Giesecke? That's fine.

Dr. GIESECKE.. Thank you.
Dr. Jackie Hansen Hunt

Testimony of Dr. Jackie Hansen Hunt

The testimony of Dr. Jackie Hansen Hunt was taken at 1:12 p.m., on March 24, 1964, at Parkland Memorial Hospital, Dallas, Tex., by Mr. Arlen Specter, assistant counsel of the President's Commission.
Mr. SPECTER. May the record show that Dr. Jackie H. Hunt is present, and may I show for the record that the President's Commission on the Assassination of President Kennedy is conducting an inquiry into all the facts surrounding the assassination of the President, and the medical care performed on President Kennedy at Parkland Memorial Hospital.
Dr. Hunt appears here today in response to a letter requesting that her deposition be taken; and may the record reflect the additional fact that Dr. Hunt is a lady doctor.
Would you at this time, Dr. Hunt, stand up and raise your right hand?
Do you solemnly swear that the testimony you give before the President's Commission in this deposition proceeding will be the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help you God ?
Dr. HUNT. I do, sir.
Mr. Specter.
Will you state your full name, please?
Dr. HUNT. Jackie Hansen Hunt, H-a-n-s~e-n (spelling).
Mr. Specter.
And what is your profession ?
Dr. HUNT. Medical doctor.

Mr. SPECTER And, are you duly licensed to practice medicine by the State of Texas?
Dr. HUNT. I am.
Mr. Specter.
And in what year were you so licensed?
Dr. HUNT. 1950.
Mr. Specter.
Will you outline briefly your educational background, please?
Dr. HUNT. I graduated from medical school at Tulane College of Medicine in 1949. I had a year of rotating internship followed by a year of pediatric residency. In 1961 I started a residency in anesthesiology, which I completed in 1963, and I am now a fellow in anesthesiology.
Mr. Specter.
Are you board certified, then, Dr. Hunt, at this time?
Dr. HUNT. No.
Mr. Specter.
Are you working toward board certification?
Dr. HUNT. Yes, I am. I am eligible and will take the first part in June.
Mr. Specter.
Did you have occasion on November 22 to render medical aid to the late President Kennedy ?
Dr. HUNT. Yes.

Mr. SPECTER. Will you relate briefly the circumstances surrounding your being called into the case?
Dr. HUNT. I was in Parkland Hospital on duty with the anesthesiology department and was notified by our chief of staff, Dr. M. T. Jenkins, that the President had been shot. Together with Dr. Giesecke and Dr. Akin, I got an anesthesia machine and put it on an elevator and checked it out and set it up on the way to the emergency room and took it into the emergency room where the President was and he had been intubated, and I helped Dr. Jenkins connect the anesthesia machine to the endotracheal tube which at that time was being run, I believe, by a Bird machine, and after making certain that the connections were properly done, I placed the equipment in Dr. Jenkins' hands.
Mr. Specter.
What doctors were present when you arrived there, Dr. Hunt?
Dr. HUNT. Dr. Jenkins, Dr. Male Perry--quite a number of others--I just can't remember who was there today.
