I am sorry to hear about Senator Ted Kennedy’s ill health. He’s the subject of a new online exhibit by the NU Libraries Archives on Student Financial Aid at Northeastern University. The exhibit recounts Kennedy’s strong support of federal financial aid for college students, and his relationship with Northeastern. He spoke at student rallies, heard personal student testimonies, and held a press conference and a senate committee field hearing at Northeastern whenever student financial aid programs were threatened by presidential or congressional proposals. The exhibit comprises photographs, articles from Northeastern University’s student and faculty/staff newspapers, official statements, and background information. I wish Senator Kennedy and his family the best.

I added the Archives exhibit info to the Wikipedia article on Ted Kennedy, too, if you look under “Political Record–Student Financial Aid,” and the references section. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ted_Kennedy
I added the information about the exhibit to the Wikipedia article on Ted Kennedy at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ted_Kennedy under “Student Financial Aid.”
That’s great Karen! (It was marking your comments as spam–I think due to the link in them).
