SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - A traveling exhibit on the career of the late U.S. Sen. Robert C. Byrd will head to six sites in the coming months.

The exhibit shares Byrd’s story as the longest-serving senator, his early life and entrance into politics and rise to leadership positions.

The exhibit was created to honor the 100th anniversary of Byrd’s birth in 2017.

Later this month the exhibit will head to Wheeling Jesuit University and Pierpont Community and Technical College in Fairmont. It also is scheduled to open later this year at the Randolph County Community Arts Center in Elkins, the First National Bank of Williamson, Marshall University’s John Deaver Drinko Library in Huntington, and the United Hospital Center in Bridgeport.
