Obey to give papers to Wisconsin historical society

MADISON (AP) -- Former Congressman David Obey will ceremoniously turn over his official papers Monday to the Wisconsin Historical Society in Madison.

The now 72-year-old represented northern Wisconsin's 7th Congressional District from 1969 to 2010.

After historical society archivists organize the collection, the papers will be kept at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, the research center closest to Obey's base in Wausau.

The public can also access the papers at the Wisconsin Institute for Public Policy and Service at the University of Wisconsin-Marathon County campus in Wausau.

The papers include correspondence, records of policy discussions, photos and video and audio recordings from more than four decades.
