Trustees Slash Contract for History Museum President

Greg Branson

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – A cut in pay is approved for the controversial head of the Missouri History Museum.

The St. Louis Post Dispatch  reports museum trustees on Friday cut Robert Archibald’s contract from three years to one year.  The move will save the museum about 800 thousand dollars.

Archibald has been criticized recently for a 2006 land deal with former Mayor Freeman Bosley Junior.  The museum bought the property from Bosley without an appraisal for $875,000.  It’s now valued at $232,000.
