Dr. Hugh W. Cunningham, a former professor of journalism at the University of Florida, donated 418 single issues of newspapers describing the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. These papers represent a broad geographic diversity of newspapers from 45 states and serve as an excellent primary source for a "slice-of-life" analysis. Newspapers fall into distinct series, based upon their date of publication. The first series includes titles from Friday, 22 November 1963, the second from Saturday, 23 November 1963, the third from Sunday, 24 November 1963, and the fourth from Monday, 25 November 1963.
