Comics Alliance reports that Al Jaffee will leave most of his art to the rare book and manuscript library at Columbia University.

He was approached by KAren Green, a Columbia librarian, about this at the 2012 New York Comicon.

The extensive collection includes his Mad Magazine "Fold-Ins," which he has been creating since 1964, numerous drawings, and several comic strip proposals.
