Alabama Historical Commission votes to hire executive director

MONTGOMERY, Ala. - The Alabama Historical Commission voted today to offer the job of executive director to retired Air Force Colonel John Neubauer of Montgomery.

The Historical Commission has been operating with an interim executive director since Lee Warner resigned under pressure two years ago.

At that time, the Historical Commission had severe financial problems and had to cut about one-third of its staff.

Commission members said they were attracted by Neubauer's management skills.

Auburn University architecture dean Dan Bennett, who headed the search committee, said everyone he talked to about Neubauer mentioned his integrity.
