Newseum to Recreate Tim Russert’s Office

The AP reports that the Newseum in Washington, D.C. opens an exhibit on Nov. 20th that will reassemble “Meet the Press” moderator Tim Russert‘s office so that it will look exactly as it did the day of his passing:

NBC is donating the office furniture to the Newseum, and Russert’s family is loaning the museum many of his belongings.

[Charles Overby, the Newseum's chief executive] said visitors will probably be surprised by all of the nonpolitical things in Russert’s office that showed he was a normal person. The exhibit also will include snippets of Russert’s biography and career as a newsman that propelled “Meet the Press” to the top of the ratings.

“There are many journalists in Washington who are respected,” Overby said, “but not many who are both respected and liked across the country.”
