Third Installment: Report from ALA GODORT

The final presenter at the June 28th Update meeting at ALA was Paul Musgrave, Special Assistant to the Director, Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum. Aside from the usual information you might expect to hear about a presidential library, the information most amusing (?) was that, at this point, there are still two separate locations for Nixon's presidential materials--the Library/Museum in California and the National Archives in Maryland. I'll bet you can guess why this particular President's papers were not all in one location--neat and tidy, as it were. Does the phrase "Deep Throat" help answer this question?
