- Matthew Beckmann, political science assistant professor, and Louis DeSipio, Chicano/Latino studies department chair and political science associate professor, are quoted in the Press-Telegram July 2, 2010
From the Press-Telegram:
The Nixon Presidential Library and Museum will release nearly 100,000 documents today, most of which focus on how Democrat Daniel Patrick Moynihan helped shape the Republican president's policies.... The new material is part of the ongoing effort to move Nixon's archives from Washington to Yorba Linda since the library came under federal control in 2007. "How great is it that these things are going to be housed at the Nixon Library? It's really a wonderful facility that's great for researchers," Beckmann said. "Having these research materials back in Yorba Linda is really a wonderful treat." Louis DeSipio, an associate professor of political science at UC Irvine, said the release of the documents "should be really valuable for scholars."
