A lawyer with three decades of experience with the federal government but none on the ground in the National Park System on Friday was named superintendent of Grand Canyon National Park, a highly unusual move for a park that has struggled in recent years with sexual harassment issues and internal dissension and seen a revolving door of acting superintendents.

Edward Keable, who has worked for the Interior Department's Solicitor's Office for 23 years, is to move to the park within 60 days, a release from the National Park Service said.
