October 15, 1994|DANIELLE A. FOUQUETTE

Flags, poems and proclamations that were part of the ceremony surrounding Richard Nixon's funeral are on display at the Richard Nixon Library & Birthplace.

In addition to the official proclamations from heads of state, the new exhibit, "Farewell Mr. President," documents with photos the more than 50,000 people who endured rain and long waits to file past the former President's coffin.

Also on display are the American flags presented by the military honor guard to Nixon's family, poems written by admirers of the late President and the presidential announcement signed by President Clinton.

The display opened Friday and continues through Oct. 30. Other events scheduled this month include several well-known speakers. Former National Security Adviser Robert McFarlane will be at the library Monday to discuss his new book, "Special Trust." On Wednesday Jack Kemp, former HUD secretary, will speak on issues expected to dominate the next presidential election.

On Oct. 28, author P.J. O'Rourke will speak on cultural and social issues.

The library, at 18001 Yorba Linda Blvd., is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday. Information: (714) 993-5075.
