Dr. Chesser became interested in the assassination of President Kennedy after reading JFK and the Unspeakable by James Douglass in 2013. Pursuant to the Deed of Gift, he requested permission and was approved to view the autopsy material related to the cranial wounds of President Kennedy at the National Archives and Records Administration II in College Park. He viewed the original skull x-rays and the House Select Committee on Assassinations (HSCA) enhanced skull x-rays in 2015. Subsequently, he was approved for two visits to view the autopsy photographs and later the digital images of the autopsy photographs which were prepared for the Assassination Records Review Board. At his most recent visit in 2017 he was approved to again view the HSCA enhanced skull x-rays.
