Surgeon at Parkland Hospital who attended to President Kennedy after he was shot on November 22, 1963. Original signed felt tip sketch of "President Kennedy's Wounds" on a white 8.5 x 11 cardstock sheet, signed "Robert McClelland, M.D., April 6, 2017." The sketch shows President Kennedy's head in profile, with the entry and exit wounds labeled on the head and neck. In very fine condition. This version of McClelland's sketch has the wounds coming from different directions, which was the subject of some discrepancy in his testimony before the Warren Commission; he initially characterized the wound at the front of the neck as an entrance wound, but backtracked on his ability to identify with certainty the exit and entrance wounds. However, he has always maintained that the mortal wound—the head wound—came from the front, likely fired from the 'Grassy Knoll' ahead of Kennedy's motorcade. McClelland maintains that there were at least two shooters and that the assassination was likely a conspiracy involving government elements.
