The Richard Nixon Library and Birthplace Foundation - A privately supported, non-profit institution. Includes forum, information for researchers, membership application, volunteer opportunities, and calendar of upcoming events.

From the site:

The Richard Nixon Library & Birthplace opened its doors on July 19, 1990 with celebration, fanfare and more than 50,000 friends and well wishers including Presidents Nixon, Bush, Reagan and Ford and their First Ladies.

It is a privately supported, non-profit institution dedicated to educating the public about the life and times of the 37th President and encouraging interest in history, government and public affairs.

The most active, innovative and visited Presidential center in America, it and the Nixon Center in Washington, D.C. conduct a wide range of public affairs programming, ranging from Town Meetings and School Editors Forums to annual National Policy Conferences and an impressive roster of distinguished speakers.

The nine acre Library & Birthplace is a three-dimensional walk-through memoir featuring a 52,000 square foot museum, 22 high-tech galleries, movie and interactive video theaters, the spectacular First Lady's Garden, the President's faithfully restored 1910's birthplace, and the flower-ringed memorial sites of President and Mrs. Nixon.
