Extreme Mortman senior historian Richard Andrews send this memory:

At age 28 I was an Alternate Delegate to the Republican National Convention in Detroit, MI.  I had been on the official Reagan slate, and this was my first National Convention, so I was pretty much already on a natural high. Wandering around the lobby of the Convention headquarters hotel (the Renaissance Center, subsequently derelict for over a decade), I was approached by a well-suited man who inquired in a familiar voice as to where the College Republicans were meeting.  I suppose I goggled at him, before admitting that I did not know.

Very interesting year, 1980.
