Gerald R. Ford Presidential Library Ann Arbor Michigan

posted in: Travel Stories | 0

FORD LOGOThe Gerald R. Ford Presidential Library is located on the North Campus of the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. The library showcases the life of President Ford with engaging photographs and memorabilia in addition to an archive of more than 25 million documents, 3,500 hours of video, and more than 450,000 photographs. We sometimes forget that Ford was in some ways a reluctant president, as he never sought the position, but was thrust in to the Oval Office upon Richard Nixon’s resignation in 1974. Come along and join correspondent, Tom Wilmer for a conversation with Geir Gundersen, the Supervisory Archivist at the Ford Library as he talks about our 38th President, and his connection with Ann Arbor and the University of Michigan.
