DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Gov. Terry Branstad and former Gov. Robert Ray are set to appear together to reveal the plans for Ray's papers.

Branstad and Ray have a news conference scheduled for Tuesday afternoon at the State Historical Museum. They will announce the plans for Ray's official papers.

Ray, a Republican, was governor from 1969 through 1983. During his time in office he served as chairman of the National Governors Association for two years and in 1979 he was part of a U.S. delegation to the Special United Nations Conference on Refugees in Geneva, Switzerland.

Branstad served as lieutenant governor during Ray's final term in office and succeeded him in office.
