$10 Million Gift For White House History Center

WASHINGTON (AP) — Philanthropist David Rubenstein is donating $10 million to set up a research and education center focused on White House history.

The White House Historical Association announced the donation on Monday. The center would be located at Decatur House, a historic site near the White House that is operated by the association and owned by the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

The center is expected to be in operation by 2013.

Rubenstein is a billionaire co-founder of a Washington-based private equity firm, The Carlyle Group. He served as a domestic policy adviser to President Jimmy Carter.
