Looking Back to 1916: Peeping Toms on NIU Campus

From the December 28, 2016, MidWeek (Dekalb County, Ill) "Looking Back."

Well, actually the school's name back then was Northern Illinois Normal School.

1916, 100 Years Ago.

"For some time past there has been a complaint from the Normal school officials that someone has been attempting to peek into the windows of the dormitory.  The action in the past of those guilty has caused the girls at Williston Hall no end of worry, and police have been working on the matter for some days past, and now have the offending where they can be reached in a few moments.

"One of the young men is about 22 years old, is old enough to know better, and should be at work more profitable to him than that of climbing onto window sills and peaking into windows."

A "Peeking Tom" even back then.  And, it was Bluto!!
