Retired television journalist Roger Mudd has donated his papers to Washington and Lee University.
The Lexington school said Wednesday that the papers document Mudd's career, including his work at CBS and NBC. There also are records from journalism courses that Mudd taught at Washington and Lee, his alma mater.
Mudd donated his collection of 20th century Southern fiction to Washington and Lee in 2006. Mudd says his papers will have "a happy home" at Washington and Lee. He graduated from the university in 1950.
