Dean Howes investigates the whereabouts of a distillery on campus. Howes wrote to the U.S. Internal Revenue Collector: “I should be very glad if you are willing to furnish me with any definite information with reference to your discovery of an illicit distillery in one of our college buildings. I am informed that you have recently made a discovery of this character, and I should be very much obliged if you could inform me as to the building in which the discovery was made, and also, if possible, the location of the room.” Source: Williams College Dean (Howes) Records (Accession 2005-996).
