SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - Gonzaga University’s collection of Bing Crosby memorabilia is being moved into the singer’s boyhood home on the campus in Spokane.

The public exhibition of the entertainer’s gold and platinum records, trophies and other items will be on display at the 101-year-old Crosby House.

A grand opening is scheduled on Saturday, Sept. 13 from 1 - 4 p.m.

The university says it’s the largest public collection of Bing Crosby memorabilia.

The Crosby House is a tourist attraction for people who want to see where the singer learned to love music. Crosby attended Gonzaga for a time before joining a band and leaving for Hollywood in 1925.
