About the Author

Donald A. Adams was born in Barberton, OH on January 21, 1931. Upon completion of  High School at Barberton  he went to  the University of Akron in his freshman year. Before he completed his first symester  he enlisted into the U.S.Army.He went through basic training and was chosen to attend  a leaders course for four more weeks. He then shipped overseas to Japan becoming a radio man in the occupation army with the 25th Infantry Division,( Tropical Lightning Division). A year and a half later  he left Japan when his outfit became involved in the war when North Korea invaded South Korea.  He was assigned to and remained with the Company the 27th Wolf Hounds where he and his team supplied communication back to Headquarters who were located seven miles behind the lines. His Division fought their way from the Pusan Perimiter up to the Yalu River separating North Korea and China. His Division along with all others were knocked back to south Korea. All of the above happened within the following year.  After one year had passed Adams then transferred back to Japan and awaited reassignment back to the United States to complete his service and to get discharged.

After discharge Adams returned to College and graduated in December 1955 with his BS in Education from Kent State University, Kent Ohio. He married Jeanette Weems of Youngstown, OH. They had three children, two boys Jeffrey, Mark  and a girl Dawn. Adams worked with the New York Life Insurance Company for seven years. He became a Special Agent of the FBI on Septmber 10, 1962, went through 14 weeks of FBI training and was then assigned to the Atlanta Division.. As a new FBI Special Agent, Donald A. Adams was assigned to duties in the Atlanta FBI field office.  In June of that year, he was assigned within that Division to a Resident Agency in Thomasville, Ga.  He had worked out of that Resident Agency for several months as a Road Trip Agent while awaiting his assignment there.

While working in that Resident Agency, on Nov. 13, 1963, and for a number of days thereafter, Adams was assigned to investigate Joseph Adams Milteer.  During the latter part of October and again in early November, Milteer made threats to kill President John F. Kennedy, either in Florida and or in Washington, D.C.  Those threats and Adams’ subsequent investigation of Milteer were just days prior to the JFK assassination on Nov. 22, 1963. In June of 1964, Adams was assigned to the Dallas FBI office and participated in the investigation of President John F. Kennedy’s murder.  It was in Dallas that Adams first viewed the Abraham Zapruder film of the killing of President Kennedy and visited the Texas School Book Depository.  In both of those instances, Adams remembers his observations as being contrary to the direction of the  investigation at that time. On Sept. 27, 1964, the Warren Commission made public its 888-page final report naming Lee Harvey Oswald as the lone assassin of President Kennedy and the sole shooter responsible for the wounding of Texas Gov. John Connally. For Adams, the Warren Commission’s report drew to a close that chapter of his life – in particular the Joseph Adams Milteer investigation – having to do with the assassination of the 35th President … at least for the next 29 years.

Adams and his family then moved to Lubbock Texas where he worked for the next four years. Their third son Douglas was born in Lubbock. Adams received orders to transfer back to Dallas where he spent another year working FBI investigations. At the end of that year Adams and his family were assigned to move and work in Buffalo, New York. They spent three years there and then were transferred and returned to their former home in Akron, OH.

In 1993, Adams was reading “High Treason,” a book about the JFK assassination by Robert Groden and Harrison Livingston.  While leafing through that book, he caught sight of a photograph that sent chills down his spine.According to Adams, “‘High Treason’ changed my life and started me on the quest to uncover the inconsistencies that were pervasive in the investigation of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.”  “If I succeed in raising enough questions and interest, I as well as all of the public would like to see, at the least, the documents still sealed by the government concerning this event opened to the public.  I would also hope that a thorough and comprehensive investigation could be undertaken and the truth of what really happened – almost 50 years ago – finally be revealed.” In his quest for the truth, Adams has compiled documents and relevant testimony that point out the inconsistencies and errors in the assassination investigation. Both his DVDs and  completed book provide the solid foundation for his contentions about the assassination. Both also raise questions that need to be answered so that the truth can finally be told. For example, Adams has made a detailed study of Oswald’s role in the assassination. “Oswald was not in a position to have made any of the shots he reportedly made.”

“Conspiracy is when two or more persons conspire to commit a crime, a criminal act or a violation of federal and/or local laws.”  The planned and discussed threats to kill President Kennedy which Adams investigated on November 13, 1963 which four men participated in WAS, IS,  AND ALWAYS WILL BE A CONSPIRACY. 

Nearly 50 years later, there are still too many unanswered questions, explains Adams. “While the why this happened is a question we may never answer, it becomes increasingly obvious that President John F. Kennedy should not have died on Nov. 22, 1963.”  For Adams, the work he has undertaken investigating the inconsistencies in the assassination has been a difficult thing to do. The reader should know that the vast majority of men and women in the FBI are dedicated to their country and to the work they are doing. They are persons of the very highest standards, with a very solid foundation of values and principals. That is what I believe makes the FBI the greatest law enforcement agency in the business.  Many times over my Bureau career, I have seen these men and women work together as a very finely tuned, precision team; they get the work done with the very best results.  I am very proud to have been one of them. 
“The reader also must know that my belief is that when the Director of the FBI – in this case, J. Edgar Hoover – takes an attitude that is contrary to a good and solid investigative direction, then the people who work under him are compelled to follow his direction. That direction may detour those men and women from what they know to be the proper direction and away from the investigative procedure they should follow.  Thus, the true and correct investigation fails. It is my belief that this is what happened in the assassination investigation. The book provides an excellent example of what Adams discovered in various publications over the past 47 years.  ”We have to wake up … all the inconsistencies and deception must be uncovered.  History and the American people deserve no less.
Today, an author of several articles, the subject of countless media interviews and a respected authority on the JFK assassination, Adams has traveled within the United States speaking about his ongoing investigation into Joseph Adams Milteer and into the murder of President Kennedy.  His book, “From an Office Building with a High-Powered Rifle,” will provide new answers to many unanswered questions.
