|Naftali steps down as director of Nixon library|
In this June 25, 1974, photo released by the White House, President Richard Nixon listens to his Secretary of State Dr. Henry Kissinger aboard the plane that brought the U.S. president to Belgium. Within two months Nixon had resigned, and in June 1975, the feisty ex-President defended his shredded legacy and shady Watergate-era actions in grand jury testimony that he thought would never come out. On Thursday, Nov. 10, 2011, it did. AP Photo/White House Photo, Ollie Akins.
LOS ANGELES (AP).- The director of the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum, who reorganized the Watergate exhibit, is stepping down.
The Nixon Foundation says Timothy Naftali's resignation becomes effective Nov. 19.
Naftali has directed the library since 2007. During that time he led the transformation of the Watergate exhibit, a makeover that scholars say provides a more balanced and accurate account of the scandal that brought down a president.
Naftali tells the Los Angeles Times (http://lat.ms/vxUT7S) his intellectual interests go beyond the Nixon presidency and he plans to pursue them.
Naftali says he intends to return to writing and plans to complete a book he's been researching on President John F. Kennedy. The Times says Naftali also will join the New America Foundation, a think tank, as a senior research fellow.
