Millennium Matinee - Collection Finding Aid



This collection contains e-mails, draft remarks, press releases, articles, invitations, and background information pertaining to remarks by the President and the First Lady at the Millennium Matinee event held at the White House on June 12, 2000. 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 9th Millennium Evening, renamed Millennium Matinee due to its earlier time frame, was entitled “Exploration under the Seas-Beyond the Stars.” The event showcased scientific discoveries in the deep ocean and in outer space. Both the President and the First Lady gave brief remarks at the event in front of an audience of local schoolchildren, and participated in a question-and-answer session. In their remarks, President and Mrs. Clinton discussed American’s heritage of exploration, the importance of studying the oceans and outer space, as well as a recent draft report on climate change.
