Nixon to Join Law Firm in New York City

May 2, 1963 - Former Vice President Richard M. Nixon was reported today to have made plans to join a law firm in New York City and to have begun searching for a permanent home in the New York area. The report that Mr. Nixon intended to give up his residence in California and practice law in New York following his defeat last fall for the governorship was broadcast by Walter Cronkite on his news program over WCBS-TV. In an earlier broadcast, Mr. Cronkite had reported that an effort had been made to persuade Mr. Nixon to establish a New York base for another try at the Presidency, but Mr. Nixon was emphatic last night in stating that he was “not in New York for any political purpose.”
