Residence*1979 Malcolm resided at Larchmont, Westchester Co., New York, in 1979. 
Biography* Dr. Malcolm Oliver Perry, II is the son of Kent Cannon and Alma (Wilson) Perry. He was born and raised in Collin Co., TX and he was four years old when his father was killed in an accident.

Dr. Perry went on to earn his B. A. from the University of Texas in 1951 and his M.D. from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School at Dallas, in 1955.3 He then interned at Letterman Army Hospital in San Francisco, CA while he was serving in the U.S. Air Force. He left the service with the rank of Captain in 1958. Following this, Dr. Perry did his residency in surgery at Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas, TX until 1962.3 In 1962, Dr. Perry remained at Parkland Memorial Hospital but he also became a fellow in vascular surgery at the University of California in San Francisco and an assistant professor of surgery at the University of Texas in Dallas, TX.3

At this point, Dr. Perry found himself at the crossroads of history. When President Kennedy was shot in Dallas, TX on Nov. 22, 1963, Dr. Perry was one of the attending physicians in the Parkland Memorial Hospital emergency room. The following is a summary of the events at the hospital by Kemp Clark, M.D., Director, Service of Neurological Surgery at the hospital.4

The President arrived at the Emergency Room at 12:43 P.M., the 22nd of November, 1963. He was in the back seat of his limousine. Governor Connally of Texas was also in the car. The first physician to see the President was Dr. James Carrico, a Resident in General Surgery. Dr. Carrico noted the President to have slow, agonal respiratory efforts. He could hear a heartbeat but found no pulse or blood pressure to be present. Two external wounds, one in the lower third of the anterior neck, the other in the occipital region of the skull, were noted. Through the head wound, blood and brain were extruding. Dr. Carrico inserted a cuffed endotracheal tube. While doing so, he noted a ragged wound of the trachea immediately below the larynx. At this time, Dr. Malcolm Perry, Attending Surgeon, Dr. Charles Baxter, Attending Surgeon, and Dr. Ronald Jones, another Resident in General Surgery, arrived. Immediately thereafter, Dr. M. T. Jenkins, Director of the Department of Anesthesia, and Doctors Giesecke and Hunt, two other Staff Anesthesiologists, arrived. The endotracheal tube had been connected to a Bennett respirator to assist the President's breathing. An Anesthesia machine was substituted for this by Dr. Jenkins. Only 100% oxygen was administered. A cutdown was performed in the right ankle, and a polyethylene catheter inserted in the vein. An infusion of lactated Ringer's solution was begun. Blood was drawn for type and crossmatch, but unmatched type "0" RH negative blood was immediately obtained and begun. Hydrocortisone 300 mgms was added to the intravenous fluids. Dr. Robert McClelland, Attending Surgeon, arrived to help in the President's care. Doctors Perry, Baxter, and McClelland began a tracheotomy, as considerable quantities of blood were present from the President's oral pharynx. At this time, Dr. Paul Peters, Attending Urological Surgeon, and Dr. Kemp Clark, Director of Neurological Surgery, arrived. Because of the lacerated trachea, anterior chest tubes were placed in both pleural spaces. These were connected to sealed underwater drainage. Neurological examination revealed the President's pupils to be widely dilated and fixed to light. His eyes were divergent, being deviated outward; a skew deviation from the horizontal was present. No deep tendon reflexes or spontaneous movements were found. There was a large wound in the right occipitoparietal region, from which profuse bleeding was occurring. 1500 cc. of blood were estimated on the drapes and floor of the Emergency Operating Room. There was considerable loss of scalp and bone tissue. Both cerebral and cerebellar tissue were extruding from the wound. Further examination was not possible as cardiac arrest occurred at this point. Closed chest cardiac massage was begun by Dr. Clark. A pulse palpable in both the carotid and femoral arteries was obtained. Dr. Perry relieved on the Cardiac massage while a cardiotachyscope was connected, Dr. Fouad Bashour, Attending Physician, arrived as this was being connected. There was electrical silence of the President's heart. President Kennedy was pronounced dead at 1300 hours by Dr. Clark.

Dr. Perry's handwritten Parkland Memorial Hospital Admission Note was included as President's Commission on the Assassination of President John F. Kennedy Exhibit No. 392 and Dr. Perry was one of the doctors called to testify before the Commission because of the controversy about the direction and number of bullets that had hit the President. The following is from chapter III of the Report of the President's Commission on the Assassination of President John F. Kennedy a.k.a. The Warren Report:

Commander Humes, who believed that a tracheotomy had been performed from his observations at the autopsy, talked by telephone with Dr. Perry early on the morning of November 23, and learned that his assumption was correct and that Dr. Perry had used the missile wound in the neck as the point to make the incision. This confirmed the Bethesda surgeons' conclusion that the bullet had exited from the front part of the neck.

The findings of the doctors who conducted the autopsy were consistent with the observations of the doctors who treated the President at Parkland Hospital. Dr. Charles S. Carrico, a resident surgeon at Parkland, noted a small wound approximately one-fourth of an inch in diameter (5 to 8 millimeters) in the lower third of the neck below the Adam's apple. Dr. Malcolm 0. Perry who performed the tracheotomy, described the wound as approximately one-fifth of an inch in diameter (5 millimeters) and exuding blood which partially hid edges that were "neither cleancut, that is, punched out, nor were they very ragged." Dr. Carrico testified as follows:

Q. Based on your observations on the neck wound alone did you have a sufficient basis to form an opinion as to whether it was an entrance or an exit wound?

A. No, sir; we did not. Not having completely evaluated all the wounds, traced out the course of the bullets, this wound would have been compatible with either entrance or exit wound depending upon the size, the velocity, the tissue structure and so forth.

The same response was made by Dr. Perry to a similar query:

Q. Based on the appearance of the neck wound alone, could it have been either an entrance or an exit wound?

A. It could have been either.

Then each doctor was asked to take into account the other known facts, such as the autopsy findings, the approximate distance the bullet traveled and tested muzzle velocity of the assassination weapon. With these additional factors, the doctors commented on the wound on the front of the President's neck as follows:

DR. CARRICO. With those facts and the fact as I understand it no other bullet was found this would be, this was, I believe, was an exit wound.

DR. PERRY. A full jacketed bullet without deformation passing through skin would leave a similar wound for an exit and entrance wound and with the facts which you have made available and with these assumptions, I believe that it was an exit wound.


After this life changing experience, Dr. Perry then continued with his medical career becoming chief of vascular surgery in 1967 and a professor of surgery in 1971.3 In 1974, Dr. Perry became a professor of surgery at the University of Washington in Seattle, WA.3 In 1978, he became a professor of surgery and chief of vascular surgery at Cornell University Medical College in New York, NY.3 In 1987, Dr. Perry went on to Vanderbilt University School of Medicine in Nashville, TN.3 And, in 1991, he was made chief of vascular surgery at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center in Lubbock, TX.3 
Death*5 Dec 2009 He died at Jacksonville, Cherokee Co., Texas, on 5 Dec 2009 at age 80.2
