Google the name Lee Bowers and you get dozens of links to pages about the assassination of John F. Kennedy. At the time of the 1963 shooting, Bowers was a 38-year-old railroad worker who allegedly had an unobstructed view of the infamous grassy knoll. Bowers testified before the Warren Commission and eventually died in a 1966 car accident — some claim that it wasn'tan accident.But Mr. Lee Bowers is not the artist featured tonight at Rockhurst University's Greenlease Gallery (1100 Rockhurst Road, 816-501-4407).
