Hundreds of items from the civil rights figure Rosa Parks that were long kept hidden away in a warehouse will have a new home at the Library of Congress for the next 10 years.

Library officials announced Tuesday night that Howard Buffett,the son of billionaire investor Warren Buffett, is loaning the entire collection to the world’s largest library.

The collection includes about 1,500 items, including Parks’ personal correspondence and photographs, letters from presidents and her Presidential Medal of Freedom and Congressional Gold Medal.
