Nixon Library and San Clemente

August 16, 1987

I was very surprised to read the article "Group Seeks to Bring Nixon Papers Home" (July 28). As a fellow San Clemente inhabitant, I was very discouraged to learn that San Clemente may lose the Nixon Library to Yorba Linda.

I have followed the many proceedings of the Nixon Library and feel that other cities are trying to take advantage of San Clemente's indecisive Chamber of Commerce. I am a high school student and can tell you that this library is long in coming. This library is exactly what we need in San Clemente. It belongs here where Nixon lived before and after his term in office. As a young child I can often remember President Nixon playing golf on the course below my home; he always had a friendly smile and his hand in the air in greeting.

This is where he lived and left a part of himself; this new library needs a home, and its home is in San Clemente overlooking the shores of the Pacific Ocean where President Nixon himself often watched the waves from his oceanfront home. San Clemente is waiting.
