The Former Director of the Nixon Presidential Library Is No Longer on Message

Historian Tim Naftali is the former director of the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum and is the author of a forthcoming book on the Kennedy presidency. Before talking with author Jeffrey Frank about Nixon’s legacy, he explained in the Zócalo green room that he’s not a former librarian—but that there are some advantages to being a former library director, one of which just might be that he no longer has to answer crazy questions about the Nixon White House tapes.
