FALLING BRONZE BUST INJURES OWN SUBJECT
George almost killed George Saturday, but yesterday he was up and walking around at his regular job as factotum of Robinson Hall.
Back in the spring of 1932 a Harvard instructor in Modelling submitted a bronze bust of George Archambeau to an exhibit in Robinson Annex.
Almost immediately Archambeau became famous as the janitor who dusts his own bust. He was very much alive then, and he still is, though only through a miracle.
On Saturday morning the little man, well-known in Robinson Hall and among employees of the University, was bending over, shutting a cabinet in the secretary's office.
Suddenly the bust of himself, perched on top of the cabinet, toppled over, crashed George on top of the head, and tore a hole in the linoleum floor.
George put his hands to his head, and took them away covered with blood. Professor Conant, who happened to be nearby, rushed him to the Hygiene Building to be bandaged up. Today he is back at his job but not by much.
