Introduction

Here you will find a broad selection of John F. Kennedy's pre-presidential speeches (and some presidential speeches) sorted first by year (default is 1942; see pull-down menu above left to select a different year) – then sorted alphabetically by city/town in the pull-down menu on each speech page (top, right-hand side). For a complete record of President Kennedy's public statements, see the Public Papers of the Presidents (in print and online).
