The Treasure in the Senate Subbasement
First Pay List Saved From Trash
By David Montgomery
Last Tuesday, as the Senate passed the homeland security bill, two staffers 
were several floors below, poking around amid the mice and the dust in a 
Capitol subbasement.
Surely the intrepid staffers must have known that it's always in obscure, 
creepy spaces where fantastic discoveries are made.
And hadn't construction workers told the staffers, Clare Amoruso and Douglas 
Connolly, that anything not removed from this subterranean warren by Thursday 
would be dumped and lost forever? Great saves are always made in the nick of

In a Dusty Vault, An Abundance of Lee Family Relics

Trunks Discovered in Alexandria Bank

By Linda Wheeler

More than 80 years after the death of Mary Custis Lee, eldest and most 

daughter of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee, two steamer trunks full of her 
papers and travel souvenirs have been found in an Alexandria bank vault.

The wooden trunks -- containing family letters, photographs, clippings of her 
father's obituary, strands of hair collected from royalty on European trips 
rarely taken by other single women of her era -- came to light after an 
inquiry from a descendant.

In Harvard Papers, a Dark Corner of the College's Past


AMBRIDGE, Mass., Nov. 29 — About six months ago Amit R. Paley, a writer for 
The Harvard Crimson, was researching an article he thought fairly mundane 
when, combing a list of the university archives' holdings, he was stunned to 
see an entry for "Secret Court Files, 1920."

That short reference eventually led Mr. Paley to 500 pages of documents

describing an episode more than 80 years ago in which the Harvard 

methodically harassed a number of young men for being gay, on suspicion of 

gay or simply for associating with gays. Nine of those victimized — one 

and eight students — were ousted from the college and essentially run out of
