Subseries 1. Speeches and Testimony

Scope and Content Notes:

Thornburgh’s ongoing career, for archive purposes, began March 1993, just after his sojourn at the United Nations. Since that time, up to and including April 2004 there were over 100 speeches and testimonies which have been digitized and are available here online. In 2013 an additional 127 were added.

In some respects, there is no better way to recognize the diversity and substance of Thornburgh’s career than in reviewing these speeches and testimonies. There is a remarkably broad array of topics which relate to his many ongoing interests and commitments, for example: human rights, drug and alcohol abuse, business crime, rule of law, partnerships in science and technology, law enforcement, United Nations, merit selection for judges, civil justice reform, health care, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), war against terrorism, disability and civil rights, Three Mile Island, crises in corporate America, WorldCom bankruptcy, and World Bank investigation. These were delivered, just for example, before Committees of Congress, at Graduations, at the Vatican Conference on Drug and Alcohol Abuse, to colleges and universities, bar associations, Chambers of Commerce and United Nations events.
