Former US Rep. Nick Rahall Donates Papers to WVU


West Virginia University’s Beckley campus is the new home of former U.S. Rep. Nick Rahall’s papers.

Rahall donated 2,000 boxes of testimony, speeches, news releases and other documents to WVU. The documents will be curated and maintained on the WVU Beckley campus.

The university says in a news release that more than 150 people attended a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Saturday celebrating Rahall’s donation.

Rahall represented Southern West Virginia in the U.S. House for 19 terms, from 1977 to 2015.
