An Old School Squatter

According to the Library of Congress web site:

Wm Abbott defied Uncle Sam. “After much persuasion William H. Abbott, 77, finally signed the papers agreeing to sell his house to the government but has now refused to move after receiving several notices from Treasury agents. The ground is wanted for the new Bureau of Engraving and Printing Annex. Abbott has spent half of his life collecting data on the health-giving qualities of pineapple juice. He claims pineapple juice has cured all of his ills and is responsible for his present age.”
