WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ A Wichita man has donated a collection of gay historical documents to the Spencer Research Library at the University of Kansas.

Bruce McKinney had spent 35 years amassing more than 160 boxes of magazines, pamphlets and underground newsletters on alternative lifestyles.

Library officials say the collection documents the history of gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transsexuals in the Midwest.

Undergraduate instruction and outreach librarian Tami Albin says the collection could ``potentially put us on the map for GLBT materials in the Midwest.''
