MISSOULA — Former Montana Sen. Max Baucus is donating his Senate papers to the University of Montana's Mansfield Library, along with $850,000 in leftover campaign money to cover the cost of archiving the documents.

Donna McCrea is head of the library's archives and special collections. She said Thursday with the addition of Baucus' papers the library will have more than 100 years of congressional history available to study.

Additionally, the Baucus Institute for Public Policy and Service will be established at the UM School of Law. Baucus intends the institute to continue the work of his Montana Economic Development Summits, which gathered Montana business leaders and included keynote speeches from leaders of national and international companies.

The university says the institute will be funded through private contributions and will include the creation of a Baucus Fellows Program and a new lecture series.
