SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Rocker Phil Collins is cleaning house at his home in Switzerland, and Texas history is about to benefit.

Collins is scheduled to visit the Alamo on Thursday to announce that he is donating his collection of Texas Revolution artifacts to the former mission and fort.

The Texas General Land Office manages the downtown San Antonio shrine to Texas’ independence. Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson tells the San Antonio Express-News that the 63-year-old singer-drummer wants to find a place for some of his material legacy and wants to keep his Alamo collection together. Patterson said some of the artifacts could be placed on display at the Alamo within a year.

Patterson says Collins is said to have the world’s largest private collection of Texas Revolution artifacts.
