Author and columnist William F. Buckley Jr. was admitted to a Detroit hospital Friday after complaining of chest and stomach pains, an aide said.

Buckley, 59, who was scheduled to address the State Bar of Michigan at its 50th anniversary convention, was first taken to Detroit Receiving Hospital, then was admitted to the coronary care unit at Harper Hospital, his secretary, Francis Bronson, said.

“He’s in for observations. There is no diagnosis.”
