As a former Dailyite, I have a special affinity for the Michigan Daily, but I think it's something we all have at least some appreciation for. Yes, the Daily gave us Drew Sharp, Michael Rosenberg and Mark Snyder ... but it also gave us Rich Eisen and America's greatest playwright, Arthur Miller, along with zillions of other high-profile journalists.
So I wanted to offer up a thread for any Daily memories or stories. And in case you haven't seen it, you need to check out the Daily archives on the Google News Archive, which is available here.
It includes scanned-in copies of almost every Daily issue from 1947-2009. Whether you went to U-M or are a lifelong fan, you'll find it addictive. It's a day-by-day history of our school and the times we lived in. The old ads alone are so cool to see. I can waste an entire day looking at old issues from 1982 - and I have.
So check it out, and offer up any appreciations or stories of your own from the Daily.
