In a four-sentence release, National Park Service officials announced Friday that they would conduct a national search to find a new superintendent for Gettysburg National Military Park, where former Superintendent John Latschar had come under scrutiny after sexually explicit content was found on his office computer.
Without explaining why Mr. Latschar was leaving his job at Gettysburg, the NPS release said he had been "reassigned to National Park Service headquarters as a special assistant to the Associate Director for Cultural Resources."
"Gettysburg National Military Park chief ranger Brion Fitzgerald will serve as acting superintendent effective October 26, 2009," added the release. "An interim superintendent will be named shortly as we begin a nationwide search for a permanent superintendent. We will issue a more detailed statement early next week."
