Gerald R. Ford Presidential Library and Museum

Opened in 1980, the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Library and Museum is a bit different than most Presidential Libraries as the Library is located on the campus of The University of Michigan, while the museum is in Grand Rapids, MI. Of course, visitors to the website will not notice this geographical separation, as they can meander through materials from both locations here. First-time visitors will want to look through the biographical information on the President and his wife, Betty, and then perhaps scan through a selection of the historical photographs that document their childhood and adult lives. Researchers and academics will appreciate the wide range of historical documents contained within the site, which include a range of documents related to the war in Vietnam and campaign documents from Ford’s 1976 presidential bid. From there, visitors will want to click on over to the Ford Museum area, which contains a number of archived online exhibits, including a multimedia exploration of the Watergate crisis, complete with film clips of news coverage.
