Oral History Project Focuses on Late Sen. Kennedy’s Legacy 

KennedysBOSTON (AP) — A major history project focusing on the legacy of the late Sen. Edward Kennedy is going public.

On Wednesday, the University of Virginia’s Miller Center and the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate are releasing the Edward M. Kennedy Oral History Project.

The project features 19 interviews with the longtime Democratic senator fromMassachusetts about his Senate career, which spanned almost five decades and 10 presidential administrations.

The project also includes nearly 250 interviews with family, friends, colleagues, foreign leaders, journalists, and staffers.

Former colleagues, staffers, and historians will gather in the Kennedy Caucus Room at the Russell Senate Office Building in Washington on Wednesday to honor Kennedy’s commitment to civil rights.

The goal was to create an archive of spoken recollections and reflections on Kennedy’s public life. He died in 2009.
