A slice of American history has found a home at Pacific Union College. U.S. Representative Frank Riggs recently donated his congressional papers to the PUC archives. The framed documents were ceremoniously presented at a luncheon at PUC in December. The contribution also includes official papers on CD-rom, along with Riggs' political and personal memorabilia. Most of the collection will be available to the public, although the details for display and accessibility have yet to be worked out.
This is Riggs' second major collaboration with the college. Earlier this year, Riggs helped PUC with a community project, securing a $500,000 grant for the college's ground-breaking of the Napa Valley Community Resource Center. The center, to be based in Napa, will offer various courses to the public at reduced costs, in hopes of providing educational opportunities to a wide audience. Riggs called the project an "exciting new chapter in PUC as it continues its outreach to the community."
