For the full Quarterly Report (pdf file)

The Library acquired the papers of Michael Moskow, 1969-76 (5 cu. ft), documenting his service in the Ford administration at the Department of Labor, the Department of Housing and Urban Development, and the Council on Wage and Price Stability.

The Library acquired papers from Juliette C. McLennan, 1976 (0.4 cu. ft.), relating to her work as Director of the National Volunteer Desk for the President Ford Committee.  The material consists of two binders of volunteer lists, state reports, and phone bank reports.

New Museum artifact accessions included a collection of Canadian newspapers from 1969-74; a 1973 mounted clipping from the Grand Rapids Press; a 1936 football program; a Gerald R. Ford state funeral plaque; a roll of Gerald R. Ford tissue and two New York Times issues from 1973 and 1974; a collection of 2008 presidential campaign memorabilia; and clothing worn by Gerald R. Ford.  Raymond Guyette donated a scale model of the USS Monterey, in which he painstakingly captured nearly every detail of the ship over one full year of work.   It will eventually be added to the museum’s core exhibit.
