Iron Mountain helped to launch an online library of papers, photos, films and other records related to President John F. Kennedy’s time in office.
The JFKLibrary.org website was a four-year effort for the company and was launched a week shy of the 50th anniversary of Kennedy’s inauguration, the company announced Jan. 13, 2011.
“Protecting information and helping others to access it is a big part of what we do, but it’s not often you work on a project of this scale and historic importance, impacting future generations and students of JFK and history everywhere,” said Bob Brennan, then CEO and president of Iron Mountain.
“It’s an awesome and humbling experience, and we’re honored to support its development and success.”
For the project, Iron Mountain provided master copies of the electronic files needed for the online library, including more than 200,000 documents, 300 audiotapes, 72 film reels and 1,500 photos.
