Watergate investigator to speak at NC museum

Posted: Updated:

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - The lead investigator on the team that discovered the taping system inside President Richard Nixon's White House is discussing his experience working with the Senate committee that looked into the administration.

Eugene Boyce will talk Wednesday at a brown bag lunch at the N.C. Museum of History in Raleigh. He'll talk about his experiences as assistant chief counsel of the Senate Select Committee on Presidential Campaign Activities. Boyce worked closely with Sen. Sam Ervin during the televised hearings about crimes committed during the 1972 presidential campaign.

The museum also is hosting an exhibit titled "Watergate: Political Scandal & the Presidency." The exhibit runs through Aug. 10, 2014, one day after the 40th anniversary of Nixon's resignation.

Visitors should bring their own lunch; the museum will provide beverages. Admission is free.
