Parkland Doctor to speak, saw entrance wound on JFK’s throat

November 7, 2013

Researcher Frank Caplett notes that Parkland doctor Ronald C. Jones has described JFK’s throat wound as being “compatible with an entrance wound.” In his handwritten report of November 22, 1963, the injury was noted as “a small hole in [the] anterior midline of [the] neck thought to be a bullet entrance wound” (WCH 20, page 333).

Dr. Ronald Jones was the 12th Chief of Surgery at Baylor University Medical Center and served in that capacity for 25 years, retiring in 2012. He remains the residency program director for the department of surgery at Baylor University Medical Center.

110 Years of Surgery at Baylor University Medical Center takes you from pioneer doctors in early Dallas to surgical practice of today. It also gives you a glimpse of the day Dr. Jones received a call that President John F. Kennedy had been shot and was on his way to Parkland Memorial Hospital’s emergency room, where Dr. Jones was a surgery resident. Dr. Jones was one of the first physicians to treat the President.
