Seeking photos and biographical info for Barry Jennings

I have written an article for Wikipedia on Barry Jennings (here), and I am looking for at least one good photo of Barry to illustrate the article. If you have such a photo which is your own property and that you would be willing to share with Wikipedia, please consider uploading to Wikimedia Commons at http://commons.wikimedia.org. Links to biographical information on Barry, and photos depicting his history, would also be potentially useful for the article. In particular, biographical information from outside of the 9/11 event and subsequent controversy is desired. For Wikipedia purposes, sources such as blogs, forums, and youtube videos are not usable. Newspaper articles, government documents, and academic papers are preferred. Suggestions on improving the existing article are welcome. Please keep in mind that the information must be presented with a neutral point of view, and that it has to be backed up with "reliable" sources, as described earlier. Thanks!

Foia request: Barry Jennings and Michael Hess (refused by NIST)

In response to FOIA request, NIST has refused to provide copies of transcripts and tapes of interviews with the first responders about Michael Hess and Barry Jennings trapped in WTC7.

Excerpt from NIST NCSTAR 1-8: proof of existence and classification of the interviews with explicit references to the two men trapped in the WTC 7:


Below there are links to documents we exchanged with NIST:

Wanted: Michael Hess UPN footage

Is the segment referred to in this blog entry viewable online anywhere?


UPN News Footage Puts Michael Hess out of WTC 7 by approximately 11:30

I have obtained a copy of the live footage broadcast by UPN 9 News, WWOR-TV, on 9/11, and it reveals that Michael Hess, along with Barry Jennings, seem to have been out of the building much earlier than NIST stated in their June 2004 Progress Report. In NIST's report, it places the two individuals' rescue between 12:10 and 12:15, but as can be seen in the video, which I have not the means to upload right now, places he and Mr. Jennings out by around 11:30, because he is speaking live on the news (via telephone with a reporter), at 11:34. The video starts at 10:37, and Michael Hess appears 57 minutes into it. The interviewing reporter, Frank Ucciardo, appears several seconds before. We can further estimate how long Michael Hess had been out of the building by reasoning that he was interviewed "on Broadway about a block from city hall", which puts him near the intersection of Broadway and Chambers Street. On Yahoo maps, the shortest route from what used to be the north face of WTC 7 on Barclay to that intersection is four-tenths of a mile. It seems reasonable to assume that it took no less than five minutes (and probably significantly longer) for Mr.

Michael Hess interviewed by In Memoriam?

I am sure there are people out there who have seen this film. I have just been doing research, actually not about Barry Jennings or Michael Hess, and came across this interview with Michael Hess done by HBO's documentary In Memoriam. The thing is, while it is listed on the site, both links to watch it (as well as all the links for all the videos) failed for me. Can anyone else see it?


Go to the interactive site.
Click on 911 and go to staff interviews. Michael Hess is pictured fourth from the left on the top row of pictures. I can't watch the interview. Can anyone? If not, we should write to HBO and try to obtain that interview. It COULD be telling.
