White House curator William Allman is retiring, CNN reported Saturday.

Allman has worked in the White House for more than 40 years. It is the second high-profile departure from the White House's residence staff this week after chief usher Angella Reid left the White House on Friday.

A team of curators will continue Allman's work while the administration fills his position. The residence jobs are non-political positions.

While the White House is a home to the president and his family, it is also a museum. The curator works with the White House interior decorator and the Committee for Preservation of the White House to keep it historically relevant as the White House evolves.

Allman has served as chief curator since 2002.
