Title:
Butler Library Painted Red
Abstract:
"While Columbia University guards were lunching early today [September 25, 1936], a well-organized squad of vandals daubed this red curtain of paint on the university's new library. Work was believed done either by painters' union or students sympathizing with Bob Burke expulsion. Paint is stain that 'sticks.'"
