  • Mike Williams, chief of administrative policy and communications for the Division of Motor Vehicles at the Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT) will present a special program Nov. 2 about the history of Delaware license plates and why they are so interesting to the citizens of the First State.
    The program will begin at 10:30 a.m. at the Delaware Public Archives, 121 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. North, Dover. The program will include topics such as the black and white porcelain sets from the 1940s, the black stainless steel tags from the 1950s, and the story behind the font-style changes in the early 1990s. Williams, a native of the First State, is a graduate of the University of Delaware and has worked for the state since 1995.
