Collecting video (and audio) of President Kennedy

Recommended Posts

I like to watch video of President Kennedy speaking so he's not just some dehumanized dead guy. But I have a lot of trouble finding video. Audio is much easier. Either way, as I find links to the President I'll add them here.



-YouTube (Audio if often out of synch with video):


First couple of minutes of JFK's inaugural address from January 1961.

JFK moon project


"The Telstar launch on July 10, 1961 marked the start of the global satellite communications era. Built by Bell Telephone Laboratories with funding from AT&T and a helping hand - read launch vehicle - from NASA, this 34 inch sphere allowed television pictures to travel live across the Atlantic. US President John F. Kennedy is shown at a press conference a year later being broadcast to Europe."

JFK vs Bush



JFK on Rossmore Ave, Hollywood. RFK Hospital L.A.

"This is the location which JFK stayed in 1960. It is the 500 block of Rossmore (either 522 or 533) in Hollywood. JFK stayed in this apartment in July, 1960- during the Democratic Convention at the Sports Arena and then the Coliseum.. Retracing the steps. Also went to the Hospital of the Good Samaritan entrance, the Hospital RFK died at. This was 2001"
