FORT SMITH, Ark. (AP) - The U.S. Marshals Museum says a gift from the widow of the late Lt. Gov. Winthrop Paul Rockefeller will fund a three-year lecture series at the museum to be built in Fort Smith.

The museum says the $100,000 donation from Lisenne Rockefeller will allow it to bring speakers from the executive, judiciary and legislative branches of the U.S. government to Fort Smith to speak about the marshal’s history as it connects to each branch. Each program is to be free and open to the public.

The U.S. Marshals Museum is to be built on the banks of the Arkansas River in Fort Smith - overlooking Oklahoma - with a groundbreaking ceremony scheduled for Sept. 24.
