Andy Rooney's typewriter, bookshelves and handmade walnut desk where he delivered commentaries for "60 Minutes" on CBS are being donated to the Newseum in Washington.
The museum about journalism and the First Amendment announced Thursday that Rooney's family had donated the items from his 7th floor Manhattan office. He had moved into the space in 1985 and delivered his closing thoughts there for Sunday night television for decades.
Rooney died last year at the age of 92. He had spent 60 years at CBS, including more than 30 years talking about the oddities of life for the popular TV newsmagazine.
Curators at the Newseum don't have immediate plans to display the office pieces. But the museum says it's honored to accept them as pieces of broadcast news history.
