EUREKA, Ill. (AP) - Eureka College says it has received $1 million from the estate of Ronald Reagan’s brother and sister-in-law, Neil and Bess Reagan.

Ronald Reagan graduated from the small central Illinois college in 1932. Neil Reagan graduated a year later.

Eureka President J. David Arnold says in a news release Thursday that the donation is a sign of the ongoing relationship between the college and the Reagan family.

As part of the donation, Eureka also received more than 100 photographs and other objects from Neil and Bess Reagan.

Neil Reagan died in 1996 at age 88 and Bess Reagan died in 2010. She was 102.
