Timothy Naftali talked about the oral history project he conducted during his tenure as director of the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum in Yorba Linda, California. He and his assistant, Paul Musgrave, conducted over 140 interviews recorded in various locations throughout the country. He stated the goal of the project was to obtain oral histories from members of Richard Nixon’s administration as well as other prominent figures from the Nixon era to obtain a bipartisan picture of the administration. His special goal was to use these interviews as the basis for a new Watergate exhibit at the library. A video clip of a Watergate hearing was shown and clips from several of the oral history interviews, which Mr. Naftali discussed. He also detailed the challenges he faced as the first federal director of the museum, which was privately run for 17 years prior to becoming a federal facility administered by the National Archives and Records Administration in 2007.
