Ford and Cavaney were both on my show, Andy in the Morning, yesterday morning.  If you missed the interview, here it is.

They went on to announce the new addition to the Ford Museum


They also announced the digitalization of important papers at the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Library in Ann Arbor. The Foundation officials will move ahead with the Museum’s design plans and details for the permanent exhibit redesign. State-of-the-art technology and improvements will be incorporated throughout the Museum, enhancing the experience and engaging visitors in a deeper conversation about the impact of President and Mrs. Ford on the nation during those extraordinary times.

A groundbreaking date for the student learning center and the creation of the interactive exhibits will be announced in the coming months.
