James Worthen Speaking at Nixon Library

The resources and staff of the Nixon Presidential Library in Yorba Linda, CA, were enormously helpful in the writing of The Young Nixon and His Rivals.  The Library’s Pre-Presidential Papers contain a gold mine of essential detail on Nixon’s career during the 1940s and 1950s.  The facility’s reference staff is well informed, hospitable and efficient.   


On November 2, 2010, Worthen presented an overview of his book to an enthusiastic gathering of scholars and members of the local community at the Nixon Library, presided over by Director Timothy Naftali.  The focus of his remarks was on Nixon’s reluctance publicly to criticize his rivals, despite their well-known antipathy toward him.  The pictures on this page are from that presentation.  

The Presidential Library and museum is located in Yorba Linda, California, situated on nine acres in southern California.

In addition to exhibitions, the grounds include President Nixon's helicopter and birthplace.

Visitors are also invited to see the special exhibit galleries, which show a variety of rotating exhibits related to our mission as a national institution and local landmark.
