STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) - The family of the late U.S. Rep. Alan Nunnelee has donated volumes of papers, along with digital records and memorabilia to Mississippi State University’s Congressional and Political Research Center.

Nunnelee was an MSU graduate from Tupelo. He died in February, at age 56, of complications from a brain tumor. His death came just four months after he was elected to his third term in Mississippi’s 1st congressional district.

The university says in a news release that Nunnelee’s wife, Tori Nunnelee, will sign an agreement releasing the collection to the university during a public ceremony Monday. During the ceremony, the university will officially change North Hall’s name to Nunnelee Hall in the late congressman’s memory.

The family also is establishing a scholarship fund at MSU in Nunnelee’s name.
