MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - Hundreds of digital photographs from former Sen. Jay Rockefeller’s archives have been released.

The 1,500 photos are available at the website of West Virginia University Libraries’ West Virginia & Regional History Center. The photos document moments from Rockefeller’s 30 years in the U.S. Senate, beginning with his first swearing-in ceremony in 1985.

WVU says the images were taken by the Senate Photographic Studio.

Lighthearted moments are featured as well, including Rockefeller and former Sen. Bob Graham of Florida trading West Virginia apples for Florida oranges after WVU’s football win over Miami in 1993.

To view the collection, visit https://rockefeller.lib.wvu.edu or West Virginia & Regional History Center on the sixth floor of the Wise Library.
