A new director has been chosen for the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum.


Veteran historian and activist Alan Lowe has landed the post after most recently serving as the first director of the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum in Dallas.


Lowe oversaw development, design and construction of the library, which opened in 2013. He also spent time as an archivist at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum, and spent more than a decade in the National Archives’ central Office of Presidential Libraries in Washington, D.C.


He later served as acting director of the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum.


The 52-year-old Kentucky native even has a dog named Lincoln, as well as Theodore Rex, a tribute to Teddy Roosevelt.
