The Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum, located in Boston’s’ Dorchester section at Columbia point on the grounds of the University of Massachusetts, is the official repository for original papers and correspondences of the Kennedy Administration.
President John F. Kennedy originally scouted the four recommended sites of his Harvard University Alma Mater on October 19, 1963.
