The Region : Kennedy Data Protected

November 26, 1986

Homicide investigation records of the 1968 Robert F. Kennedy assassination were declared "historically significant" by the Los Angeles City Council in a move to prevent them from being destroyed. The designation will allow the collection of papers, tape recordings and official documents to remain in the city archives until a suitable repository is found, City Clerk Elias Martinez said. A panel, appointed by Mayor Tom Bradley, is conferring with state and federal archivists, as well as universities, interested in housing the Kennedy papers and preparing them for public viewing, Martinez said. The New York senator was shot by Sirhan B. Sirhan in June, 1968, shortly after winning the California Democratic presidential primary.
