MORGANTOWN -

A West Virginia University alumna debuted her documentary of George Esper at WVU's School of Journalism Thursday night.

Elaine McMillion's film, "Tales of An A-P Journalist," tells stories people don't know about Esper and focuses on his accomplishments.

Esper died before he could see the finished product.

"From growing up in Pennsylvania to going to the Vietnam War as a reporter and AP Bureau Chief and then coming back... and sort of the reflections of war and how that affected him. All the way to coming here to WVU and teaching to his death. When I started I never thought that he wouldn't be here to see the end result," said McMillion.

McMillion said Esper was with her for every cut along the way and hopes the film is a good memorial.

The film will be available on DVD within a month.
