MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - A collection of literary manuscripts by Nobel laureate Pearl Buck are coming to West Virginia University.

West Virginia University, West Virginia Wesleyan College and the Pearl S. Buck Birthplace Foundation have announced the institutions will form a partnership to preserve and disseminate the legacy of Buck. As part of that agreement, the manuscripts will be coming to the WVU libraries.

Buck is one of 13 Americans to win the Nobel Prize in Literature and the first of only two American women to do so. She was also the first American woman to win both the Pulitzer Prize and Nobel Prize in Literature.
