   JFK Assassination Reports and Records
   Central Intelligence Agency (CIA)

The Russ Holmes Work File consists of over 45,000 pages of records relating to the JFK assassination, released as a batch in 1998 through 2000. This collection is part of the so-called "Segregated Collection" of CIA records accessible to the House Select Committee on Assassinations (HSCA) during its investigation in the late 1970s. The Russ Holmes Collection is vast, covering cables, memos, transcripts, newspaper clippings, and a variety of other documents on Oswald's trip to Mexico City, CIA liaison with the Warren Commission and HSCA, CIA monitoring of the Garrison investigation, Yuri Nosenko, and much more.

The set of documents listed here is a small sample of the entire collection, which is available in an 8-CDROM set (see Catalog).
