reaganwayne: Sorry, this isn't from Harrison's Inaugural address, but recorded years after he left office. You need to amend this upload's title. If unconvinced, read his Inaugural address, then stand corrected. More accurately, this is the earliest President to be recorded. The Vincent Voice Library at Michigan State University, the world's foremost collection of historic recordings, has the official history of this snippet.
Grover Cleveland (conservative limited-government Democrat) was the 1st President to be recorded on a sound device, and later on film (standing at McKinley's 1897 swearing-in, film shot by Edison).
