The director of the Museum of the Aleutians has resigned after just four months on the job.
Dr. Neal Hitch signed a three-year contract with Unalaska's cultural history museum in August. But last week, he said unforeseen circumstances have forced him to leave the island.
"I've just had some personal family matters come up, and I have to return to California to take care of that stuff," said Hitch. "It's kind of unfortunate, but some personal things in my own life just made the location impossible."
