DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - About 800 boxes filled with papers collected by now-retired U.S. Sen. Tom Harkin during his days in Congress are now at Drake University, where they will be made available to the public.

The university is storing the Harkin papers in its archives on its library’s second floor. The Des Moines Register (https://dmreg.co/1tLi3wi ) reports the documents include legislative bills, reports and constituent letters.

The Democrat left the Senate this month after several decades in office. Republican Joni Ernst now holds the seat.

Officials say organizing, cataloging and digitizing Harkin’s papers will take several months.
