The Martin Luther King, Jr., collection spotlights how Boston University shaped its most famous alum. “It was this University that meant so much to me, in terms of the formulation of my thinking and the ideas that have guided my life,” King explained at the time. The majority of the collection’s 83,000 documents are office files — letters, financial and legal papers, news clippings, travel schedules — that the civil rights leader gave the University in 1964, the year he won the Nobel Peace Prize.
