The nascent Latino Museum of History, Art and Culture, on the verge of locating a site after nearly three years of planning, has lost one of its mainstays--its president and executive director. Frank H. Cruz, the former KNBC-TV anchorman who took over the post in February, 1991, left the museum last week after being named chairman of the board of the new Gulf Atlantic Life Insurance Co.

Cruz, a former television reporter and general manager of KVEA Channel 52, a Spanish-language station, has been appointed president and executive director of the planned museum.
