GLENS FALLS, N.Y. (AP) — A Texas law school professor has donated an extensive collection of 19th century French prints and books to a museum in upstate New York.

The donation of 94 items from Tobin Sparling was the second major donation this year to the Hyde Collection of Glens Falls. Earlier this year, the museum received 128 photographs by 14 significant photographers from former presidential adviser George Stephanopoulos.

Hyde Collection Director Charles Guerin tells the Glens Falls Post-Star (http://bit.ly/XKnvAA ) that the Sparling collection is a thorough spread that covers the 19th century of French print-making.

Guerin said there will be an exhibition of some of the Sparling collection from mid-January to Mid-March. An exhibition of some of the Stephanopolous photographs will follow from Mid-March to Mid-May.

Sparling graduated from Glens Falls High School.
