Filled with a distinct hunger for knowledge, Dan Helpingstine is a full-time writer with an enduring interest in John F. Kennedy’s assassination and presidency. He has read more than two hundred books on Kennedy and has visited Dallas on numerous occasions.
During his trips to Dallas, Helpingstine spends time with the people of the city in order to better understand the effects of the assassination on the community psyche. He is particularly fascinated by the way Dallas has struggled with the legacy of the assassination and the way that the assassination has affected the national and international perception of the city.
As a freelance journalist, Helpingstine wrote two articles about Kennedy for the Post-Tribune newspaper, worked as a “stringer” for The Times newspaper, and covered high-school basketball and football for a weekly newspaper. An avid baseball fan, Helpingstine wrote four books about baseball and one murder-mystery story. He devoted twenty-two years to the Chicago Lighthouse for People Who Are Blind or Visually Impaired as a job-placement counselor and a program manager. He speaks frequently at professional conferences, including those in Los Angeles and Chicago.
Helpingstine holds a bachelor of arts in political science from Indiana University Northwest and a bachelor of general studies in labor studies. He and his wife, Delia, live in Highland, Indiana, and they have one daughter, Leah.
