In Ann Arbor, Ford Library’s Flag is at Half-Staff

The Detroit Free Press reports: “At the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Library in Ann Arbor, the flags flew at half staff. But the doors were locked as employees scurried to transform the unassuming building from its holiday decor to a library in mourning.

The staff was caught a bit off guard at Ford’s death. They had been kept well aware of his failing health, said library director Elaine Didier, but didn’t think his time was so near.”
