Chicago History Museum to search for new president

The Chicago History Museum announced that its president, Gary T. Johnson, is planning to retire.

Johnson has led Chicago's oldest cultural institution, which was founded in 1856, since 2005. A national search is being commenced for his successor.

"Gary wants to retire in a manner that provides a seamless transition for the Chicago History Museum, and he has agreed to stay until his successor is on board," said Walter Carlson, chair of the museum's Board of Trustees, in a statement. "The next president will be a person who can build on Gary's commitment to the community and to the idea that a museum must continually reinvent itself."

Johnson took the lead at the museum after a 28-year legal career. At the time, he was a partner in the global firm Jones Day, and previously at Mayer Brown. At the museum, he succeeded Lonnie Bunch, who moved to the Smithsonian Institution to develop and lead the then-unopened Museum of African-American History and Culture, which opened in 2016.
