MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - In a story Nov. 5 about U.S. Sen. Jay Rockefeller donating his Senate papers to West Virginia University, The Associated Press gave the wrong location of an event Saturday. It will be held at the Wise Library on the university’s downtown Morgantown campus, not at the Morgantown public library.

A corrected version of the story is below:

Jay Rockefeller to donate Senate papers to WVU

Retiring Jay Rockefeller to donate US Senate papers to West Virginia University

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - Retiring U.S. Sen. Jay Rockefeller is donating his Senate papers to West Virginia University.

Officials said Wednesday that the West Virginia Democrat will make the donation Saturday in the Milano Reading Room at the Wise Library on the university’s downtown campus in Morgantown.

Rockefeller and WVU President Gordon Gee will be among the speakers at the event.

Rockefeller is retiring in January after 30 years in the Senate. He also served as governor, secretary of state, in the House of Delegates and as president of West Virginia Wesleyan College.

Among his many contributions to the university include founding a nonprofit institute named after his mother that researches memory disorders and neurodegenerative diseases.
