MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - The West Virginia and Regional History Center is chronicling the legacy of former Sen. Jay Rockefeller in Wise Library’s Rockefeller Gallery at West Virginia University.

The center’s assistant curator and congressional and political papers archivist Danielle Emerling is curating the exhibit, using the Rockefeller Legacy Memos, a collection of 12 memos, to show Rockefeller’s work in the areas of health care reform; West Virginia jobs, economy and industry; children, families and education; and veterans’ affairs.

Items on display come from Rockefeller’s papers donating his 30-year tenure in the Senate. He donated the collection to the West Virginia University Libraries in 2014.
