Description
The collection includes files accumulated by Gregory Freemen Stone during his investigation into the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy.
Background
On June 5, 1968, United States Senator Robert F. Kennedy was shot and killed in the kitchen of the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles, California. Kennedy had just won the California primary election for the Democratic nomination for President earlier that night. While Kennedy was passing through the hotel's kitchen, Sirhan Bishara Sirhan, a 24-year old Palestinian immigrant, shot and killed the presidential hopeful. Sirhan subsequently confessed to the crime, was convicted of first-degree murder on April 17, 1969, and is currently serving a life sentence for Kennedy's assassination.
