MOUNDSVILLE, W.Va. (AP) – The estate of three-term West Virginia Gov. Arch A. Moore Jr. is selling pieces of history and personal items at auction.
    
Behm’s Auction and Real Estate Services held the first of a series of auctions for the estate on Tuesday at the Marshall County Fairgrounds. Other auctions will be conducted through October.
    
The Intelligencer and Wheeling News-Register reports that items offered for sale included gifted glassware from Moore’s meeting with President Ronald Reagan and a collection of Moore’s suits and ties.
    
Behm’s Auction owner Jim Behm says much of the proceeds will be donated to West Virginia University.
    
Moore died at age 91 on Jan. 7. He served six terms in the U.S. House of Representatives before he won gubernatorial elections in 1968, 1972 and 1984.
