Centennial Exhibit Officially Opens at the Nixon Library

    The Nixon Centennial Exhibit, Patriot. President. Peacemaker, officially opened at the Richard Nixon Presidential Library Friday, February 15 before former White House officials, and friends and admirers of President Nixon.

    Remarks were given by Nixon Foundation President Sandy Quinn, board director and Nixon White House Assistant Chief-of-Staff Larry Higby, Marine Corps aide to President Nixon Jack Brennan, exhibit co-curators Frank Gannon and Bob Bostock, and Archivist of the United States David Ferriero.

    This highly visual story teller presentation features the most important and influential aspects of the 37th President’s life. Guests get to “walk in RN’s shoes” as they’re guided through the five key chapters of President Nixon’s life that define his legacy, How American, In the Arena, Creating a Just Society, Peacemaker of His Time, and Global Elder Statesman.

    “This exhibit tells a fascinating American story and it does so in ways that engage and draw in the visitor, said the Archivist of the United States. “It is the kind of exhibition to which you will want to return. And each visit will expand your understanding of and appreciation for the patriot, president, and peacemaker.”

    See the exhibit online at NIXON100.ORG.

    Admission to the Library is free on Presidents’ Day.
