St. Lawrence News

NetNews


Media coverage of the 40th anniversary of the assassination of Robert Kennedy included several mentions of Kennedy's speech at St. Lawrence University in 1966, which was recorded by David Emblidge '67, an associate professor in the department of writing, literature and publishing at Emerson College.

Emblidge wrote an essay, titled "My Bobby Kennedy and Yours," which was published by CommonDreams.org on June 6. The essay is an account of Kennedy's talk at St. Lawrence, and Emblidge's views upon listening to the recording now.

Amy Goodman interviewed Emblidge for a special edition of DemocracyNow.org, on Kennedy. The show included excerpts of the talk at St. Lawrence, which had never been broadcast.

Emblidge, who earned his St. Lawrence degree in English, holds a master's degree from the University of Virginia and a Ph.D. from the University of Minnesota. He has worked extensively as an author and and editor, as well as an educator. At St. Lawrence, he was president of the student government organization the Thelomathesian Society and was elected to the leadership honorary Omicron Delta Kappa.
