Hello College of Education Doctoral Students -

Democratic presidential candidate Gov. Bill Clinton visited Michigan State University and spoke to a crowd behind the bell tower on this day in East Lansiing. After the speech he walked by the Union and down Grand River Avenue shaking hands.
The Red Tape Editor shook his hand as he worked the crowd afterwards.
On this day, a young woman in a Yugo -- on her way to visit her boyfriend in the Upper Peninsula -- was blown off the Mackinac Bridge and died. Today, the Mackinac Bridge Authority offers assistance on blustery days, sending a full size truck alongside cars to serve as a windbreak.

Ernest Gideon Green (born September 22, 1941) was one of the Little Rock Nine, a group of African-American students who, in 1957, were the first black students ever to attend classes at Little Rock Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas. Green was the first African-American to graduate from the school in 1958. In 1999, he and the other people of the Little Rock Nine were awarded the Congressional Gold Medal by President Bill Clinton.
Following his brush with national fame, Green attended Michigan State University as the beneficiary of a scholarship provided by an anonymous donor. While at Michigan State, Green became a charter member of Omega Psi Phi fraternity's Sigma chapter and continued to engage in activism and protests supporting the Civil Rights movement. He later learned that the anonymous donor was John A. Hannah, the president of Michigan State, and ironically, an occasional target of protests by Civil Rights activists including Green. Green graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in 1962 and a Master's degree in sociology in 1964. Green also was the top of his class.
In 1999, he and the other people of the Little Rock Nine were awarded the Congressional Gold Medal by President Bill Clinton.
