Unknown "(Library Paste)" Man
Birth: unknown
Death: Jul. 14, 1908
Goldfield
Esmeralda County
Nevada, USA

This unknown man, a starving vagrant, dug a tub of library paste out of the trash. Made mostly of flour and water it seems reasonable to eat, but the paste contained alum, which is poisonous if a large enough dose is received. The Alum along with an already weakened health condition appear to have been enough to cause his death.
