LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - New Mexico State University is set to celebrate the opening of the Pete Domenici Archives.
The school has scheduled a ribbon cutting ceremony Tuesday to unveil the collection of the state's former senator. Officials say the archives will span 3,000-linear feet.
The collection includes unique artifacts and memorabilia from Sen. Domenici's extensive career in New Mexico. A photo exhibit will also highlight the senator's work in Washington.
Domenici, a Republican, served in the U.S. Senate from 1972 to 2009. He is the longest serving senator in state history.
