White House Says Longtime Curator Set to Retire Next Month

WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House says its longtime curator is retiring after more than 40 years with the federal government.

Stephanie Grisham, a spokeswoman for first lady Melania Trump, says William Allman will retire June 1. Grisham says Allman had been considering retirement since June 2016 but agreed to stay through the transition to the Trump administration.

Grisham says Allman spent 41 of his 42 years with the government in the curator’s office.

He spent almost 15 years as chief curator, serving as a historian and preserver of historical furnishings at the White House.

Allman says in a statement released through the White House that it’s been a “tremendous honor” to help eight presidents and first ladies preserve and beautify the White House, and maintain its art and furniture collections.
