Archibald Resigns From Missouri History Museum
ST. LOUIS, MO – Robert Archibald, the president of the Missouri History Museum, announced his resignation Thursday.
A museum spokesperson confirmed Archibald submitted his letter of resignation to the board of directors Thursday. There will be a closed-door meeting Friday morning to discuss Archibald’s resignation.
The Zoo-Museum District oversees all the taxpayer-supported cultural institutions in St. Louis including the history museum. Trustees met in October, arguing over whether the head of the history museum should stay and about the role of former Mayor Freeman Bosley, Jr. in a land sale.
Sparks have been flying over the history museum’s purchase of land back in 2006 and about Archibald’s salary and perks.
