MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - Former U.S. Nick Rahall is donating 2,000 boxes of documents from his congressional career to West Virginia University.

The papers include testimony, speeches, news releases and other documents. Rahall represented southern West Virginia for 19 terms in the U.S. House, from 1977 to 2015.

WVU Beckley and WVU Tech campus president Carolyn Long says in a news release that Rahall’s papers will offer students a unique look inside the life of a congressman who served for nearly four decades.

To further utilize Rahall’s papers, WVU said it will promote partnerships with Marshall and Concord universities, the Robert C. Byrd Center for Legislative Studies and the West Virginia State Archives.

A ribbon cutting and celebration is scheduled for Oct. 3 in Beckley to commemorate Rahall’s donation of his papers.
