“Single Bullet” Exhibit Opens at the Battleship New Jersey

An enthusiastic group gathered on Thursday evening, April 9th, to celebrate the opening of Single Bullet at the Battleship New Jersey in Camden. This exhibition was created through a collaboration of Philadelphia University students and faculty, of the Law & Society, Graphic Design, and Architecture programs, and staff of the university’s library and Design Center. It showcases the late Senator Arlen Specter’s “single bullet” theory, which is at the core of the Warren Commission’s explanation of the Kennedy assassination. Major pieces, including a replica of the Kennedy limousine, were transferred to the Battleship NJ Museum from the Paul J. Gutman Library, Philadelphia University, the exhibition’s original site. The New Jersey venue was made possible through the generous sponsorship of Philadelphia University alumnus, Phillip Borst, principal of Scungio & Borst of Camden, N.J. Philadelphia University President Stephen Spinelli and Battleship NJ CEO Phil Rowan made introductory remarks, expressing appreciation for the contributions of each institution towards the success of this joint effort. Camden County Surrogate Patricia Egan-Jones and Battleship NJ Curator, Jason Hall also spoke.
Single Bullet will open to the public beginning April 11. See: for more information
