CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — Harvard University has
Harvard hosted the John F. Kennedy Centennial Symposium on Thursday. Former U.S. ambassador to Japan, Caroline Kennedy, who is Kennedy's only surviving child, was among the featured speakers.
U.S. Rep. Joseph Kennedy III of Massachusetts, the grandson of former U.S. Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy, also was among the speakers. So was Maria Shriver, a journalist and daughter of the former president's sister, Eunice Kennedy Shriver.
The daylong series focused on the late president's priorities and how they remain relevant today. Kennedy was born May 29, 1917, in Brookline, Massachusetts. He was assassinated in Dallas, Texas, on Nov. 22, 1963.
