History in the Meeting
Oct 14, 2011John Tunheim '75 and Clint Hill '54 share more than their Cobber roots.
They also are connected by a moment in U.S. history – the assassination of President Kennedy.
Hill is a former Secret Service agent who was in the motorcade in Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963. He was assigned to protect Jacqueline Kennedy during her husband's presidency.
Tunheim, a U.S. district judge and chair of Concordia's board of regents, chaired the Assassination Records Review Board. In the 1990s, the board found, reviewed and released thousands of government files relating to the assassination.
While on campus for Homecoming, the two men met – taking a moment to enjoy the company of another individual who had insight into that history-changing moment.
