Deconstructing Arnim’s wallet

Imagine Arnim Meyburg’s surprise earlier this month when he received a call that his wallet had been found. He looked at his wallet beside him, puzzled.

Then a distant memory came to him.

The emeritus professor of transportation engineering and planning’s wallet had been stolen from his briefcase in his Hollister Hall office in 1985. Construction workers at the Law School, across the street from Hollister, found the wallet while tearing down an interior wall and ceiling.

“Needless to say, I was astounded about the find and its location …” Meyburg wrote to contractors Welliver and McGuire to commend their workers Brian and Kevin Knapp, who sleuthed Meyburg on the Internet. “But I was even more impressed that these two gentlemen cared enough to contact me.”
