  2. Credit due

    Good news! Your 1968 photo of RFK is on the cover of a current bestseller. Bad news: It’s credited to someone else.

  3. What's the buzz

    What defines a beloved tavern, dive, or watering hole? New York-based artist/author John Tebeau, BS ’86, has a pretty good idea. In fact, he left his heart at Dominick’s and the Del Rio.

  4. Precious mettle

    Coin collector Patrick Heller, BBA ’74, once held a rare doubloon worth $7.4 million. So how does he appraise the coin commemorating the U.S./North Korea summit?

  5. Pride and publishing

    As a gay youth, Edmund White, BA ’62, bemoaned the dearth of books that reflected his experience. So, he wrote his own. Today he holds the PEN/Saul Bellow Award for Achievement in American Fiction.

  6. All in the family

    When the U-M Museum of Natural History reopens in 2019, visitors will come face to face with a hyperrealistic reconstruction of an extinct human relation.
