JFK Speaks (on FDR and Hugo Black)

The Harvard Gazette reports today--with a link--that the Harvard University Archives has made available the earliest known recording of John F. Kennedy, an 88-second clip from his public speaking class in 1937, in which JFK discusses the controversy over Hugo Black’s appointment to the Supreme Court by President Franklin D. Roosevelt.
