Bush Library Gets ADA Artifacts

COLLEGE STATION - The research collection at the George Bush Presidential Library at Texas A&M is about to get a lot bigger with material from the Americans With Disabilities Act.

Lex Frieden is a professor at the UT Health Science Center and Baylor College of Medicine in Houston.

He's also an historian and disability rights activist who helped write the Americans With Disabilities Act, which President George H.W. Bush signed into law.

Frieden donated his collection of books, posters, and other artifacts to the Bush library for the bill's 25th anniversary next year.

"When we celebrate that, I think it's an appropriate point in time to look back and see what we've accomplished. It's also I think an important time to look ahead," Frieden said.

The donated artifacts will be available for the public to see on the library's website and by appointment at the library's research room.
