MERIDIAN, Miss. (AP) - The Montgomery Foundation and the Mississippi State University Libraries will make a formal presentation of a new book honoring the life and work of the late U.S. Rep. G.V. “Sonny” Montgomery.

The pictorial book, entitled “G.V. ‘Sonny’ Montgomery: Patriot, Soldier & Statesman,” was commissioned by the Montgomery Foundation and produced by the Mississippi State University Libraries.

The presentation will be made at 2:30 p.m. Friday at the Phil Hardin Foundation Library on the Mississippi State University-Meridian campus.

The book contains about 350 photos from the more than 13,500 photos contained in the MSU Libraries’ G.V. “Sonny” Montgomery Collection.

A conservative Democrat, Montgomery represented an east-central Mississippi district in Congress from 1967 to 1997, and for 13 years chaired the House Veterans Affairs Committee. He died in 2006.
