The New Nixon Library

"The New Nixon Library"

As Kevin Drum explains:

Well, just for the record, it turns out that last year the library was transferred into the federal system and a new director, Tim Naftali of the University of Virginia, was named director. The old private foundation still controls a couple of buildings, but basically it’s now a nonpartisan institution under federal control. Naftali told me that they’re busily updating the displays and that Nixon’s presidential papers, kept in Washington until now, will be shipped to California as soon as a new archive building is constructed. It is, one might say, the New Nixon Library.

If you read, say, this you’ll get a sense of where Tim’s coming from politically.
