Jack Ruby, Before Dallas

Ruby (third from right) grew up in Chicago, and spent time in juvenile hall and foster homes. He sold
horse-racing tip sheets and, later, was implicated in the fatal shooting of the president of the
Teamster's Union; he was cleared of any wrongdoing. Ruby served in the Army Air Forces during
World War II, working as an aircraft mechanic at domestic bases until 1946. Pictured: Ruby with
friends at a restaurant during leave from Army service in WWII.

Ruby Kicks Back

Ruby moved to Dallas in 1947 where he managed various nightclubs, strip clubs, and dance halls.
(And where he changed his name from Rubenstein to Ruby.) He befriended many Dallas police
officers, who frequented the nightclubs. Pictured: relaxing in a restaurant while on leave from
Army service in WWII.

of the evidence in the John F. Kennedy assassination investigation and is now located at the
