Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall

An Evening with Ambassador Caroline Kennedy

In celebration of the Oregon Historical Society exhibition, High Hopes: The Journey of John F. Kennedy (on view now through November 12) the Oregon Historical Society is thrilled to welcome Ambassador Caroline Kennedy to Portland for a special lecture.

Ambassador Caroline Kennedy is an attorney and editor of nine New York Times best-selling books on constitutional law, American history, politics, and poetry. She served as the U.S. Ambassador to Japan from 2013 to 2017. Caroline will speak about her experience as ambassador over the last four years and address why strong U.S.–Japan cooperation is so important for the security and prosperity of both countries going forward.

She is a prominent member of the Kennedy family and the only surviving child of President John F. Kennedy and First Lady Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy. From 2002 to 2011 she was Vice Chair of the Fund for Public Schools, raising over $280 million to support public school reform and engaging a record number of New Yorkers to volunteer in New York City schools. She is Honorary President of the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation and a member of the John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award Committee. A graduate of Harvard University and Columbia Law School, Caroline is also Honorary Chair of the Senior Advisory Committee of the Institute of Politics at Harvard University.
