The family of the late Ross Pendergraft, long-time chief operating officer of Donrey Media, has given $1 million toward the construction of the U.S. Marshals Museum in Fort Smith, which is the Pendergraft hometown.

The gift will go to a theater named in his honor. It will show a film about the U.S. Marshals Service and the museum. Pendergraft died in 1998. His widow, Donnie, made the gift with other family members.

According to the website, the museum in May had raised about $22 million toward the $55 million project cost.
