Biography

American manufacturer of women’s clothing, but was best known for his home movie documenting the assassination of U.S. President John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963. At the time of the assassination, Zapruder was an admirer of President Kennedy and considered himself a Democrat. Zapruder had originally planned to film the motorcade carrying President Kennedy through downtown Dallas on November 22 but decided not to film the event as it had been raining that morning. When he arrived at work that morning without his camera, Zapruder’s assistant insisted that he retrieve it from home before going to Dealey Plaza because the weather had cleared.
