Spectral EditionThe devastating 1906 earthquake in the Bay Area of San Fransisco destroyed the library at Stanford University.

Each Wednesday, I post an actual ghost report from a U.S. newspaper published between 1865 and 1918. You can also hear me read the articles on The Big Séance and the History Goes Bump podcasts — or listen to previously released recordings here.
