We toured the University of Oklahoma, which for our son is a prospective college choice. During our tour, our guide took us into a section of the library called “The Stacks”, where old volumes are stored and accessible to students. As our guide told the story of a girl that had supposedly fallen through one of the glass tiles to her death, thus rendering The Stacks to be haunted, I explored a couple of the aisles. I found this volume from 1902. I wonder who the last student was that opened this? I couldn’t help but be rather enamored with these old bound pieces of history, and I’m thankful that OU has preserved them for future generations to enjoy.
