Interview with Dr. William Dinkins
QUESTION 3
INTERVIEWER:

ON THE NIGHT OF FEBRUARY 16th, WOULD YOU DESCRIBE FOR US HOW YOU CAME TO TREAT JIMMY LEE JACKSON AND WHAT YOU DID IN THAT OPERATION YOU PERFORMED?

Dr. William Dinkins:

On the night of February 16, 1965 Dr. E.A. Mallax (SP) and I, along with Dr. J.H. Williams who is a Dentist were over at Burwell Infirmary and they were bringing in victims from Marion, Alabama and most of the injuries were head wounds and we were attending to these head injuries and all of a sudden I received a call from the Good Samaritan Hospital that they had a gun shot victim over there. So I told Dr. Mallax that I was going over to Good Samaritan and he and Dr. Williams finish there and when they finished, come on over to Good Samaritan. So I went over to Good Samaritan and made the preliminary preparations and decided he needed surgery and I waited for Dr. Mallax and Dr. Williams to appear.
