On November 4, 1991, action star Arnold Schwarzenegger landed his helicopter in the Nixon Library parking lot to join Richard Nixon and Bob Hope for a special event for friends and supporters of the Library. Twenty-five years later, the former governor of California returned to Yorba Linda to tour the all-new museum. In an exclusive interview, we asked him what he thought of the new exhibits.
Marking 40 years since President Nixon’s resignation, the Richard Nixon Foundation and the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum are releasing unedited June 1983 footage of the 37th President – in his own words – chronicling his final days in the White House with former White House aide Frank Gannon.
Each video in the series — entitled “A President Resigns” — is divided up by day and will be published in real time, the day on which the events happened 40 years ago. The series launches Tuesday, August 5 and will continue through Saturday, August 9.
The general public is invited to follow the story as it unfolds daily and engage on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube using the hashtag #APresidentResigns.
