Kent Day, 65, has retired as curator of the Layton Heritage Museum, 400 North Wasatch Drive in Commons Park. The Harvard graduate in anthropology, with a speciality in Peruvian archaeology, has operated the museum since it opened 14 years ago.

Searching for a replacement, the city took applications for the 20-hour-a-week job until Dec. 5.The museum will be closed while a replacement is found and because of preliminary construction on a new outdoor amphitheater.
