Tip O’Neill Family Panel to Air Aug. 18 & 19 on C-SPAN 3
The Speaker Thomas P. (Tip) O’Neill Jr. Family Panel held earlier this year at the Cambridge Public Library will air on C-Span 3 Saturday, Aug. 18 at 6:39 p.m. and 10:39 p.m. and on Sunday, Aug. 19 at 11:39 a.m. This fascinating discussion, which included three of the Speaker’s children and his grandson, was moderated by MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, and offered a unique perspective on the Speaker’s life and legacy by those who knew him best. The panel can also be watched on C-SPAN 3’s website: www.c-span.org/History/. The family panel was part of a series of events commemorating the centennial of Thomas P. O’Neill, Jr., the well-known Speaker of the United States House of Representatives. Additional panel discussions, a golf tournament and other event are being planned in September.
