Former Sen. James Sasser give Vanderbilt his papers

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Former U.S. Sen. James R. Sasser has donated his papers to Vanderbilt University.

Sasser, who also served as U.S. ambassador to the People's Republic of China, and his wife, Mary Sasser, have made gifts of their documents and photographs to the university's Special Collections.

James Sasser said Vanderbilt was the logical repository for his papers, noting that he and his wife met at the university as students in the 1950s and his law degree serves as the basis for his public service career.

The Sassers now live in Washington, D.C.
