Subseries 4. Events

Scope and Content Notes:

Thornburgh continues to be a regular participant in many organizations' functions, committees of the Congress, dinners, seminars, meetings, dedications and commencements, for example. In this portion of the collection the researcher will find the speeches he gave at the many different speaking engagements, and interviews with a variety of interviewers ranging from the student writing an article to national media. Thornburgh continues to focus upon his strong interests and commitments, which are evident in the events, particularly white-collar crime, testimony given on the subject of terrorism, narcotics and foreign relations, and the American Disabilities Act (ADA) to name a few. This section is arranged in chronological order by date of event.

There is a second group of events that are grouped by year. There are several events within each year, primarily those for which there is only a minimal amount of information. However, though the information is slim, there are several interesting topics and events, which took place between 1993-2002. Included are the official presentations of portraits for Mr. Thornburgh, President George H.W. Bush, and Barbara Bush.

Lastly are schedules from his work at his law firm, Kirkpatrick and Lockhart.
