This series is a chronological speech file of drafts with Senator Kennedy's and Theodore Sorensen's corrections, some typescripts, reading copies, and press releases for speech appearances. These files cover speeches from February 1953 to November 1960, but are still probably incomplete. An alphabetical listing of the same speeches by title is located at the end of the subseries. Materials in Box 1103 were added later as part of Accession 2005-187 (June 2005). These files include several speeches dating from 1953 to 1959 and are arranged chronologically.
