Tuesday April 17, 2018 - The World Figure Skating Hall of Fame announced its largest class of inductees since its premier year of 1976.  Among the inductees is the late Dr. Richard Porter of the Ann Arbor Figure Skating Club.

The only institution of its kind in the world, the Museum is dedicated exclusively to the preservation and interpretation of the history of figure skating.The greatest names in figure skating are honored in the World and U.S. Hall of Fame. Induction into the Hall of Fame is the highest honor a figure skater can achieve. The Hall of Fame includes such distinguished skaters as Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean, Dick Button, Scott Hamilton, Ekaterina Gordeeva and Sergei Grinkov, Midori Ito, Sonja Henie, and Katarina Witt.

Dr. Porter was selected by the Legends Committee, which considers contributions in 1960 and prior.
