A2: History

On the Dragoncave blog, Art Durkee writes about his memories of Ann Arbor, where he grew up and went to college. Regarding a street sign at the intersection of Bluett and Nixon roads: “After the Watergate scandal in the mid-1970s, this sign was stolen many times, probably by high school and college kids, as a prank, or as a memento. The cabdrivers in Ann Arbor used to call this corner ‘Watergate’ as radio shorthand.” [Source]
