Boxing great Joe Louis and hockey Hall of Famer Gordie Howe are among the 2007 inductees to the Michigan Walk of Fame.
They are among 12 people to be honored on the sidewalk display in downtown Lansing just a few blocks from the state Capitol. The project honors past and present state residents who have made significant contributions to the state, nation or world.
Inductees are recognized with a bronze plaque.
Automotive pioneer William Durant, United Auto Workers leader Walter Reuther and polio vaccine developer Jonas Salk also are among this year's honorees.
