Fitzwater exhibit to open at Kansas State library

MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — An exhibit about former presidential press secretary Marlin Fitzwater is opening next month at Kansas State University.

The Salina Journal reports that Fitzwater donated his personal papers to the Richard L.D. & Marjorie J. Morse Department of Special Collections at Kansas State Libraries. A sample of that donation makes up the exhibit, with visitors able to examine correspondence, publications, photos, memorabilia and official government documents.

The exhibit will remain on display through March 17.

Fitzwater is a Salina native who grew up in Abilene and graduated from Kansas State. He worked in the Environmental Protection Agency, and the departments of Transportation and the Treasury, before serving Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush. Before going to Washington, he worked on newspapers including The Manhattan Mercury and The Topeka Capital-Journal.
