News photographer in JFK assassination dies at age 87
By JOE SIMNACHER / The Dallas Morning News
Tom Clinton Dillard, who was chief photographer for The Dallas Morning News during the Kennedy assassination, died May 21 of a heart attack in at his home Albuquerque, N.M. He was 87.
Services were private.
In more than 30 years as head of The News' photo department, Mr. Dillard saw newspaper photography evolve from the use of bulky Speed Graphic cameras with flashbulbs to 35 mm photography. He also covered many events, including President John F. Kennedy's assassination.
On Nov. 22, 1963, Mr. Dillard was in the front seat of a photo car not far behind the presidential Lincoln. He took a photo of the Texas School Book Depository from the motorcade moments after the shooting. He later gave his eyewitness account of the assassination to the Warren Commission.
Nine years earlier, on New Year's Day 1954, Mr. Dillard took a memorable strip of photos of the Cotton Bowl where a University of Alabama football player on the sideline jumped off the bench to tackle a Rice University player who was in a 95-yard breakaway touchdown run.
Mr. Dillard's sequence of photos ran in newspapers across the county, in Life magazine and on television's Ed Sullivan Show.
Mr. Dillard designed and built the sequence camera, which operated with two 12-volt batteries.
At the time, newspapers ran game photos taken high above the action. Mr. Dillard converted a World War II aerial camera with a giant lens known as Big Bertha, said retired News photographer Clint Grant.
"He was a hard worker and a very good photographer," said Mr. Grant, who worked with Mr. Dillard for nearly 30 years.
Former sports editor Walter Robertson said Mr. Dillard was a versatile photographer who specialized in overhead sequence photography.
"He was a good ground photographer too, but after he became chief of the photo department he didn't have much time," Mr. Robertson said.
Born in Fort Worth, Mr. Dillard entered the newspaper business in 1929, as a 14-year-old copy boy at the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Mr. Dillard tried his hand at livestock reporting and writing sports, before he was offered a chance to become a photographer in 1935.
Although he knew nothing about photography, he soon found the job to his liking.
"I became the fair-haired boy of society and sports ... the star photographer on the Star-Telegram," Mr. Dillard said in Pictures of the Pain, a 1994 book about the photographers of the Kennedy assassination.
Mr. Dillard met his wife, Katherine Rawlings Dillard, at the Star- Telegram. Ms. Dillard later became a pioneer in covering women's issues at The News. She died in 1997.
Mr. Dillard entered the Army Air Forces in January 1942. He attended Officer Candidate School at the Military and Air University. Mr. Dillard received a Bronze Star for his service in the China-Burma theater and was honorably discharged as a lieutenant colonel.
Mr. Dillard returned to the Star-Telegram after the war but moved to The News in October 1947. He retired in 1978 and moved to Cedar Creek Lake. In 1994, he moved to Albuquerque.
Mr. Dillard is survived by his step-daughter, Dr. Shannon Gurbaxani of Los Angeles; three grandchildren; and one great-grandchild.
Memorials may be made to the SPCA of Texas, 362 S. Industrial Blvd., Dallas, TX 75207.
