On May 6, 2015 the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Library hosted an event organized by the University of Michigan Bentley Historical Library, honoring former Congressman John Dingell for his donation of more than 550 boxes of papers from his 59-year career in Congress. The program featured a “fireside chat” with Congressman Dingell (seated left) and Bentley Library Director Terry McDonald (seated right).
