Mrs. De Clark, The Clerk, The Help & The Comet With No Name
This article was written 102 years ago this week and concerns a comet which was observed by Eloise clerk Stanislas M. Keenan as it straddled the horizon near the asylum for nearly an hour. Keenan, of course, wrote the History of Eloise in 1913 (which can be read for free here). I doubt that he ever envisioned that we'd be talking about him through an electronic medium these many decades later. Our robot ancestors of the future will mutter the same about us.
from The Detroit Free Press; August 4, 1905
