Disappearance of W. S. Whitwell
William Scollay Whitwell '03, left Cambridge on the night of Thursday, February 26, and has not been definitely heard of since. He wrote a note saying that he was under a temporary fit of mental delusion and, to avoid being a drag on his family and friends, he would commit suicide by jumping off the Fall river boat. The note was received in Cambridge the next day. Thee porter and the newsboy on the boat, however, state that they saw him get off the boat on Friday morning and the baggage agent on the wharf asserts to have seen him on the wharf on Sunday, March 1. He has since been reported at the Waldorf-Astoria and at other places in New York. His family in New York is confident of his return.
