Traveling Exhibit on Sen. Robert C. Byrd Opens This Month


A traveling exhibit about the late U.S. Sen. Robert C. Byrd is opening later this month in Shepherdstown.

The exhibit features more than 100 photographs and documents from the archives of the Robert C. Byrd Center for Congressional History and Education at Shepherd University.

It opens with a special event on April 29 at Erma Ora Byrd Hall at Shepherd. The exhibit will tour the state over the next two years, culminating in Charleston in November 2017 in celebration of the centennial of Sen. Byrd’s birth.

The Democrat died in 2010 at age 92.
