The Kennedy Legacy: 50 Years Later
Join us November 5-7, 2013 for this special symposium to examine the milestones of President John F. Kennedy's one thousand days in office and the legacy of those three years.

North Dakota native, Clint Hill, the courageous Secret Service agent who leapt onto the back of the presidential limousine in the midst of the assassination on Nov. 22, 1963, is one of our keynote speakers. His talk is one of many compelling sessions you can take part in during the Kennedy Legacy: 50 Years Later.

Other symposium topics include:
  • Kennedy in North Dakota
  • The Cold War
  • Warren Commission
  • Conspiracy theories
  • A Kennedy concert by the Bismarck-Mandan Symphony Orchestra
