WMU offers first peek into new legacy collections center
KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The City of Kalamazoo is getting a first peek inside Western Michigan University's Zhang Legacy Collections Center.
Friday evening, the university held a dedication ceremony for the center, along with guided tours.
The center is named in honor of major donors Charles and Lynn Zhang, who also graduated from WMU.
The new $8.7 million facility will house the WMU archives, and regional history collections.
Some of the documents and artifacts will be held in a climate-controlled building with UV-filtered glass for protection.
Before the Zhang Legacy Collections Center opened, the archives were housed in WMU's East Hall for more than 20 years.
