MS 106.3.4.6 Speech Files 1979-1996 12 boxes

Arranged alphabetically by subject. This subseries contains speeches, many of them handwritten or annotated, given by Cohen at events such as commencements, dedications of buildings, Senate hearings, and testimonial dinners. Some of the subjects covered are defense, health, education, and the economy, and there are also files on individuals such as Margaret Chase Smith, Robert Dole, and John Tower (nominated as Secretary of Defense in 1989). Some files span ten to fifteen years. For example, a file on Margaret Chase Smith contains drafts of speeches Cohen gave at events such as the dedication of the Margaret Chase Smith building in Bangor in 1984, Smith's ninetieth birthday celebration in 1987, and her memorial service in 1995. Speeches given by others, apparently used by Cohen for reference purposes, are also included in these files.

It should be noted that these speech files are not comprehensive; many of Cohen's statements and speeches may be found throughout his papers.
