Presidential Audio Recordings

Of possibly historical interest, here is the earliest known audio recording of any President of the United States: Benjamin Harrison, sometime in 1889 (Real Audio, and MP3 versions)

Text: "As president of the United States, I was present at the first Pan-American congress in Washington D.C. I believe that with God's help, our two countries shall continue to live side-by-side in peace and prosperity. . . Benjamin Harrison."

The website contains audio recordings from several other presidents
