President Ford dies: coverage resources

By Steve Safran Comment

President Gerald Ford died Tuesday at age 93. The news of his death came too late for many morning newspapers, and probably caught plenty of newsrooms off guard during this traditionally slow news week. Here are some resources to help with coverage in the next few days: Website for the Ford Library, Official page for condolences, UCSB archive of Ford presidential papers (excellent historical resource with transcripts of significant papers), official biography, Wikipedia bio, TIME article from Sept. 9, 1974, famous quotes.
