+# Michigan
+#
+# From Bob Devine (January 28, 1988):
+# Michigan didn't observe DST from 1968 to 1973.
+#
+# From Paul Eggert (1995-12-19):
+# Shanks writes that Michigan started using standard time on 1885 Sep 18,
+# but Howse (p 126) writes that Detroit kept
+#
+# local time until 1900 when the City Council decreed that clocks should
+# be put back twenty-eight minutes to Central Standard Time. Half the
+# city obeyed, half refused. After considerable debate, the decision
+# was rescinded and the city reverted to Sun time. A derisive offer to
+# erect a sundial in front of the city hall was referred to the
+# Committee on Sewers. Then, in 1905, Central time was adopted
+# by city vote.
+#
+# This story is too entertaining to be false, so go with Howse over Shanks.
+#
+# Most of Michigan observed DST from 1973 on, but was a bit late in 1975.
