There are several opportunities to support the Arlen Specter Center ranging from support for specific exhibitions to the general fund for the restoration of the Roxboro House and the operating endowment of the Center.
The Arlen Specter Center for Public Service fosters greater understanding of political science, government and history through research, educational programming, and exhibits inspired by Senator Arlen Specter’s career and reflected in the permanent collection of the Senator’s historic papers.
Arlen Specter (Feb. 12, 1930 – Oct. 14, 2012) was a United States Senator from Pennsylvania. Arlen Specter had an extraordinary career in public service, from his work as a young assistant counsel to the Warren Commission investigation of the Kennedy assassination, to his two terms as District Attorney of Philadelphia, to his thirty years in the U.S. Senate.
