Took Books While Irresponsible
"Dr. R. G. Thwaltes, secretary of the Wisconsin historical library, has received a letter from a young woman, a former student at the state university, admitting that she carried away about 200 state and university library books found in boxes stored in her name at the Sumner & Morris warehouse. She says she took the books while under influence of a drug prescribed for her by a physician." - from "Took Books While Irresponsible," Stevens Point Daily Journal (August 18, 1906).
