When Senator Edward M. Kennedy spoke at the dedication of the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum almost 40 years ago, it established an archive and museum where visitors and researchers from  across the globe could learn about President Kennedy’s life and legacy.

Since then, six directors have been in charge of stewarding the more than 10 million documents, recordings, and artifacts housed inside. Alan Price, who worked in Barack Obama’s administration, is the Library’s latest director after starting the job last November. In this episode, we speak with him about his affinity for President Kennedy and his hopes for the future of the Library.

Special thanks to this episode's guest, Alan Price.
