  • Ex-museum head to repay Smithsonian for expenses

    The founding director of the National Museum of the American Indian has agreed to repay the Smithsonian Institution more than $9,700 for improper travel and entertainment reimbursements, according to an audit released during late October.

    The report from Smithsonian Inspector General A. Sprightley Ryan was issued to members of Congress and Smithsonian leaders after scrutiny last year of W. Richard West Jr.’s extensive travel expenses. He spent more than $217,000 on transportation and luxury hotels in 2006 and 2007, according to calculations in the audit.
