Sorcerer's Apprentice At Harvard

Once upon a time, there was a variant on the old fairy tale The Sorcerer's Apprentice.  An American variant, and what it was about was some Harvard students who raised a devil and found it got out of hand.

And what saved the day?

What else:  the president of Harvard arrived back in time to stop it.

Well, at the time, he would have been an ordained minister.

When reading primary source, it is well to read widely, including things about things you think will never ever affect your writing.  It's amazing how they can sometimes shine light in the oddest corners.
