Boston (AP) - Massachusetts officials are considering adding Sen. Edward M. Kennedy's name to public buildings and landmarks just a week after his death.
 
One state lawmaker has proposed changing the name of Boston's Logan International Airport to Logan-Kennedy International Airport in honor of the late senator, who died at age 77 of a brain tumor.
 
Administrators at a Boston charter high school want to change the name of their facility to the Edward M. Kennedy Academy for Health Careers.
 
And planning was already under way before his death for a building to house an Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the Senate.
 
There's no shortage of Kennedy family landmarks in Boston, including the John F. Kennedy library and the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway.
