Iowa Senator Tom Harkin went to Iowa State for his college degree. It remains to be seen whether his papers will now follow.
The original plans called for the papers to be on display at the Harkin Institute, located on the ISU campus. But disagreements over possible restrictions of the use of the papers have stopped Harkin from turning them over to the institute, at least for now.
Harkin confirmed he is considering housing his life’s work at Drake University instead.
Harkin answered those questions to Dave Price on Channel 13’s The Insiders.
