SALEM, Va. (AP) More than 150 photographs taken by pop artist Andy Warhol have been donated to Roanoke College.

The college said Wednesday that the photos are among more than 28,000 works being donated by the Andy Warhol Photographic Legacy Program to 183 colleges and universities.

Roanoke College's Olin Gallery received 103 Polaroid photographs and 51 black-and-white photographs. They include photos of President Jimmy Carter, William Burroughs, Cheryl Tiegs, Truman Capote, Liza Minnelli and Martha Graham.

The college says some photos will be on display in the fall. A larger exhibit is planned after the photographs are documented and framed.

Warhol died in 1987.
