    The New Nixon ^ | June 18, 2009 | Bob Bostock
    Et tu, Brute… Shortly after becoming director of the Nixon Library in 2007, Dr. Timothy Naftali invited the nation’s press in to witness the removal of the Nixon Library’s Watergate exhibit. Declaring, “I can’t run a shrine,” he gleefully presided over the destruction of the exhibit, which resulted in numerous articles reporting that the “whitewash of Watergate” was over at the Nixon Library. Dr. Naftali went on to assert, “The challenge is to present a controversial, traumatic and important story in a fair and historically accurate way.” By any measure, he has failed his own definition of success. Two...

    YORBA LINDA – The first Amendment was alive and well today, Presidents' Day, as demonstrators for and against the war in Iraq displayed signs along Yorba Linda Boulevard, in front of the Nixon Presidential Library & Museum. The larger group, a dozen strong, set up on a corner waiving signs criticizing the war and handing out slices of "Bring Them Home-made Pie" to passersby. A man driving a yellow Hummer honked at the group and gave it a thumbs up. They responded in kind. One of the demonstrators, Pat Alviso, waved a sign with a picture of her son. "He...

    WASHINGTON - A historian of the Cold War with expertise in presidential recordings has been selected as the first federal director of the Nixon presidential library. Timothy Naftali, 44, who directs the presidential recordings program at the University of Virginia's Miller Center of Public Affairs, will begin his new job Oct. 16, the National Archives and Records Administration announced Monday. By then the library in Yorba Linda, Calif., should have completed its transition from private to public institution. The letter of offer formalizing the hand-over was transmitted to the House and Senate last Thursday, and must remain before Congress for...

    The Nixon Library Can't Be TrustedDavid Greenberg, in the LAT (3-15-05): [Mr. Greenberg is a professor at Rutgers University. His book, Nixon's Shadow: The History of an Image, was recently published in paperback by W.W. Norton.] It's rare for a scholarly conference to make the newspapers. It's rarer for a conference to make the papers when it never takes place. But that's what happened recently when the Richard M. Nixon Library & Birthplace in Yorba Linda canceled a symposium on Nixon and the Vietnam War that it had planned to sponsor with Whittier College. The cancellation provoked an uproar....

    As I said on the first thread I posted about the Speaker's book tour, "thanks to CFR, the publisher, Regnery, is the only one who can put out mailings for this type of event. The RNC has mailing lists, but cannot give them to Regnery. The RNC could sell the lists to Regnery for 'fair market value,' but then would have to sell the lists to anyone who requested them, including MoveOn.org and the other freaks." So if the democrats want to restrain free speech to the point that a book signing can't be advertised, I thought I'd bring the...

    WASHINGTON - House-Senate bargainers agreed Wednesday to let the government take the first steps toward establishing a formal Richard Nixon presidential library. Until now, the late President Nixon has been the only president without his own federal library since the National Archives presidential library system began with President Hoover's library in Iowa. The Nixon library currently operating in Yorba Linda, Calif., is a private one. Nixon's presidential papers and tapes were seized by the government when he left office in 1974 following the Watergate scandal, and have been kept by the National Archives in College Park, Md. At the...

    <p>YORBA LINDA, Calif. — Beneath the glistening reflecting pool, behind the interactive exhibits, beside the resplendent rose garden, Richard Nixon is here.</p> <p>By that I mean much more than just his image. Like every presidential library, the Richard Nixon Library and Birthplace is packed with pictures of the great man. Here he is in his Whittier College debate team photo, the teenager's body somehow saddled with the middle-aged man's face. Over there he is shaking hands with a bleary-eyed Elvis, the irony of the president's enlistment of the pill-popping performer in a war on drugs seemingly lost on them both.</p>

    The body of Richard Milhous Nixon was scarcely in the ground when the struggle for control of his legacy had begun. It was April 28, 1994. His grieving daughters and their husbands were bound from California to New York on the plane that once served as their father's Air Force One. They were a comfortable foursome that had practically grown up together: Tricia and Julie - inseparable in youth, maids of honor at each other's weddings - and the sons-in-law who melted seamlessly into the Nixon clan, feeding the patriarch's hunger for political discourse at every Christmas gathering. The disgraced...

    MIAMI -- The daughters of late President Richard Nixon were ordered Thursday to join a lawsuit over $20 million his longtime friend willed to the Nixon presidential library. Any court decisions would be binding only if Tricia Nixon Cox and Julie Nixon Eisenhower participate in the lawsuit, Probate Judge Maria Korvick said. The Nixon Library and Birthplace in January sued a trust created in the will of banker Charles "Bebe" Rebozo of Key Biscayne, who died in 1998. The will gave 65 percent of his estate to the library, but required that expenditures be approved by Nixon's daughters and another...
