Twelve years old in 1963, Dougherty saw the Kennedy motorcade on Harwood Street and then heard shots fired in Dealey Plaza as he walked to his father’s furniture store on Elm Street. An Oak Cliff resident, Dougherty was good friends with J.D. Tippit’s son, Allen, and spent time with him at the Tippit home on the night of the assassination. Recorded December 6, 2007.
