Nixon marking anniversary

January 20, 1994|By Los Angeles Times

YORBA LINDA, Calif. -- Shortly before noon today, 25 years after he stood on the steps of the nation's capital and swore to uphold the Constitution, former President Nixon was to stand in the shadow of his boyhood home and celebrate the part of his past that was glorious.

And in tribute to Mr. Nixon -- the only U.S. president forced to resign after being disgraced by political scandal -- the Richard Nixon Library and Birthplace marks the 25th anniversary of his inauguration with the unveiling of plans for the Center for Peace and Freedom. The think tank is being dedicated to Mr. Nixon's principles of "enlightened national interest in foreign policy and pragmatic idealism in domestic affairs."
