Jenny Sanford donates materials to College of Charleston

Charleston, SC (AP) - Jenny Sanford has donated her scrapbooks, emails and letters to the College of Charleston.

According to media reports, Sanford donated 16 boxes of materials last year and college archivists recently finished cataloging the items.

Jenny Sanford says she was moving last summer and either needed to donate the items or get rid of them. They include materials she kept during her marriage to Mark Sanford and his earlier campaigns for Congress and governor.

The two divorced after Mark Sanford disappeared from the state in 2009, only to return to admit he was having an affair to a woman to whom he is now engaged.

Jenny Sanford later wrote a book, "Staying True" about her life and marriage to Sanford, who this month again won his old congressional seat.
