Robin Hood Found Guilty!

100 years ago today, Richard Packard, bookkeeper for Harris Brothers & Bartlett, was found guilty of embezzling over $6,000. He gave all the money to the poor. He told the judge that he just wanted to be known as a "good fellow."

I found this gem in the Library of Congress' digital historical newspapers, www.loc.gov
