Gerald Ford's N.C. connections included stint with Tar Heels

Gerald Ford first came to North Carolina as a young law student. He returned as a Navy trainee, a president and a loving father. Ford, who died Tuesday at the age of 93, attended law classes at UNC during the summer of 1938, before starting law school at Yale University. The star center on the University of Michigan's 1932 and 1933 national champion football teams also briefly helped coach the University of North Carolina's football, boxing and swimming teams.
