HERE AT THE OPENING, AND I NEVER LEFT! I was here before opening 21 years ago, and never left. So you can imagine how honored I am to be named President, particularly after serving the last year as Executive VP and COO under President Ron Walker. Ron had signed on for one year with several objectives — including launching our incredibly successful Nixon Legacy programming. Also, we involved hundreds of faithful Nixon alumni in three days of 20th anniversary celebrations, activated the Board of Directors with four meetings a year and participatory committees, and invited hundreds of alumni to “come home” to Yorba Linda and help us keep the flame of the Nixon legacy burning brightly. After an extraordinary year as President, Ron is now Chairman, and together we look forward to an exciting future. Here are highlights of my agenda: ★ Increase the quality of online web content, and expand our reach and impact globally. ★ Plan high-profile Centennial celebrations for First Lady Pat Nixon (2012) and President Nixon (2013). ★ Expand Nixon Legacy programming nationally. ★ Increase donor giving through funding plans for improvements and additions. ★ Refresh existing exhibits, and create visitor-attracting temporary exhibits in collaboration with the National Archives. ★ Increase Library paid and free attendance, and increase retail sales. We now own the property next door, with warm thanks to donor Josie Abplanalp, widow of RN’s close friend Bob Abplanalp. A major goal this year will be to propose a specific future use. Maybe an educational center, meeting venue, exhibit pavilion, academic center for scholars, a Chinese Garden, a replica of the White House State Dining Room, or maybe offices for implementing our online web plans, including the exciting Nixon Channel of exclusive live and taped video presentations. And, yes, I promise we will continue appearances by VIP officials, candidates, Nixon White House alumni, and best selling authors. Please remember that your suggestions and counsel will always be welcome.

FORUMS

NE DAY IN 1989, I had lunch with Hugh Hewitt, then Executive Director of the Foundation, and Loie Gaunt, longtime RN friend and assistant, who asked me to become a consultant for the Richard Nixon Library & Birthplace, set to open the next year. I led a marketing firm of former colleagues from Disney, and was on RN’s staff when he returned to California in 1961 following his Vice Presidency. It was exciting as we built the original library staff; created imaginative exhibits; attracted highprofile officials and best selling authors to speak; and presented national policy conferences in Washington, Los Angeles and Yorba Linda. Our attendance was among the highest of Presidential libraries, and we had the most active programming.

he Foundation’s 7th Nixon Legacy Forum was Creating Opportunities for Latino Americans. Held Oct. 11 at the Nixon Library, it featured a panel of distinguished Nixon White House and campaign officials who first reached out to America’s Hispanic community, introduced pioneering programs for minority enterprise, included Mexican-Americans in the U.S. Census, and appointed Latinos to high-level government positions for the first time in history. Panelists included Martin G. Castillo, Carlos Condé, G.G. Garcia, David V. Gonzales, Manuel Oliverez, Theresa Avillar Speake, Stuart K. Spencer, and moderator Dr. Henry M. Ramirez, the last Chairman of the Cabinet Committee on Opportunities for Spanish Speaking People. Special guests included Hon. Rosario Marin, the first Latina-immigrant Treasurer of the United States, plus prominent Hispanic community leaders among who served with the panelists in the White House Cabinet Committee on Opportunities for Spanish-Speaking People and the National Economic Development Association. “I want to thank you for opening the doors,” Treasurer Marin told the panelists. “You created the path for people like me to achieve things that historically I wouldn’t have been able to do.”

THE WEEK THAT CHANGED THE WORLD

T

ogether with the University of Southern California’s U.S.-China Institute, the Nixon Foundation presented its 8th Nixon Legacy Forum, The Week that Changed the World, on USC’s Los Angeles campus.

Jack Brennan told the inside story of how the trip was planned and executed. The panel was followed by an examination of the trip’s impact and China’s role in the world today including China’s relationships with the United States and Asian neighbors, China’s role in popular culture, and its involvement in Middle East Affairs.

“THAT OUR MILITARY IS CAPABLE, DEDICATED AND OVERWHELMINGLY SUPPORTED BY OUR CITIZENS TODAY IS A LASTING TRIBUTE TO RICHARD NIXON.”

Congratulations Don, America has remained a great country because of courageous, patriotic citizens like you. —SPEAKER NEWT GINGRICH
