Obama to Visit MHS, Deliver Manuscript

Upon learning that he was one of only three presidents for whom the MHS does not have manuscript holdings, Barack Obama announced this morning that he'll be dropping by the Historical Society this evening (he'll be in town for two DNC fundraisers) to personally deliver a handwritten draft copy of his 2004 Democratic convention keynote address, delivered here in Boston.

In a statement announcing the trip, Obama promised that he would ask his two immediate predecessors to follow his example.
