History Librarian Jane Shambra said, “With long hair and a gauze flowing type garment and they would look at the apparition and then as soon as she was recognized the woman would disappear. What happened was the couple finally divorced and he said, ‘I’m giving these to you to take care of if you want them. We concluded as a family that it has to be the books.’”
