RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Civil rights leader and theologian Wyatt Tee Walker has donated his personal papers, recorded sermons and memorabilia to the University of Richmond Boatwright Memorial Library.
    
The university announced the gift this week.
    
Walker served as chief of staff to Martin Luther King Jr., executive director of the Southern Leadership Conference and special assistant to Nelson Rockefeller. He is pastor emeritus of Canaan Baptist Church of Christ in Harlem.
    
Significant items in the donated collection include photographs Walker took of King while they were jailed in Birmingham in 1967; numerous letters to King and others on civil rights issues; and journals, drawings, diagrams and notes kept by Walker's wife Theresa, who was also active in the civil rights movement.
