WILLIAMSBURG, Ky. (AP) - A new bust of former Kentucky Gov. Bert T. Combs has been unveiled at University of the Cumberlands in Williamsburg, where Combs graduated in 1930 and where a scholarship in his name is established.

Combs’ widow, Kentucky Court of Appeals Judge Sara Combs, unveiled the bust along with university President Jim Taylor in an event leading up to 125th homecoming activities over the weekend.

Combs said there’s no other place where her husband is remembered and respected as he is in Williamsburg.

Bert T. Combs was governor from 1959 to 1963. He died in 1991.

The bust was unveiled in the foyer of the Cumberland Inn.
