Millennium Evening - Collection Finding Aid
This collection contains transcripts, remarks, background information, talking points, and speech drafts relating to First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton’s remarks at the Fifth Millennium Evening, held at the White House on January 25, 1999. President and Mrs. Clinton created the Millennium Council in 1997 to oversee commemorative and celebratory activities in anticipation of the beginning of the 21st century. The Council entitled the January 1999 Millennium Evening “The Meaning of the Millennium.” Featuring theologian and religious historian Martin E. Marty and medieval historian Natalie Zemon Davis, the program compared contemporary religious and secular reactions to the year 2000 to similar trends during the previous millennial transition in the year 1000.
