(Harrisburg) -- The University of Pittsburgh is getting involved with the late Arlen Specter's massive collection of papers, photographs and recordings from a career in public office that spanned five decades.
Specter, Pennsylvania's longest-serving U.S. senator, died in October at 82. On Monday, the University of Pittsburgh said its library system will organize and manage the Arlen Specter Collection for four years and store it for 30 years.
Philadelphia University will continue to own the archive, while the two schools plan to collaborate on educational programming, exhibitions and access to it.
The center's first exhibition will involve Specter's role as a lawyer on the Warren Commission, which investigated the 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy. It will open in October in observance of the 50th anniversary of Kennedy's assassination.
