Henry and Effie Osborn

Harry was on “police duty extraordinary” Halloween night. He described his activities and some of the tricks that students pulled that night and in earlier years.

“I think that I hear every noise & feel that I may be the subject of some terrible joke at any instant.” Osborn, Henry 1884-10-31
