In a previous post entitled 'See No Evil, Hear No Evil', I had mentioned a murder taking place in the school that my great-grandmother attended.
While searching the internet for any information about Josie's school, I came across an article about an artist named Max Eglau who was murdered at the Institution for the Improved Instruction of Deaf-Mutes. It was actually just a snippet of an article from the New York Times. I tried to view the full article but it wouldn't come up; maybe it was too old? I was curious to know when this horrible event occurred. Was my great-grandmother in the school when it happened? I needed to know more. I searched and searched the internet for any information about Max Eglau. I mostly found art galleries featuring his work but I did find a few more 'snippets' of articles regarding the murder. I was a bit frustrated but determined to learn who Max was.
I finally located news about the murder from historic newspapers at the Library of Congress and will write about this tragedy over the next few days.
