Congrats and the best of luck. University of Michigan is my alma mater and I 
learned as an undergraduate student to do legal research in the stacks of 
the Law Library with a reader in the early 70's. I received both my 
bachelor's and master's degrees from there. I understand the campus has 
changed since I left Ann Arbor to move to California in the mid 80's. After 
the warm reception we received at the national convention in Detroit I'm 
sure the NFB of Michigan will welcome you with open arms.
