It has come to our attention that certain items in the library are being “hid” in the Compact Shelving area, located on the lower level.
Please, if you use any item in the library, we ask that you kindly re-shelve the item where it belongs. If you’re confused as to where the item should go, you may place the item on any of the shelving carts located on each floor in the library by the elevators. Also, you may bring the book up to circulation and we will be happy to re-shelve the item for you.
Lastly, if the item circulates, feel free to bring it to circulation and check it out. This way, you are guaranteed use of the item at your convenience.
Thank you for your cooperation.

Tags: impeachment, NYS Governor, William Sulzer
Bob Emery, our Associate Director and Head of Reference was asked about William Sulzer. The following is his response:
It’s Moot Now…but impeaching a governor in New York State has its share of idiosyncracies. The first peculiarity is that the NYS Constitution does not state the grounds for impeachment (in contrast to the famous “Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors” of the U.S. Constitution, art. II, § 4). In New York, impeachment grounds are statutory: “willful and corrupt misconduct in office” (Jud.L. § 240).
The state constitution does provide for the tribunal that tries impeachments: the Court for the Trial of Impeachments (Art. 4, § 24), consisting of the state senate and the judges of the court of appeals sitting together, the chief judge presiding (Jud. L. §§ 240-248 flesh out this provision by further specifying the operation of this Court; §§ 415-428 set forth the procedure required). Under these provisions, the NYS process follows the basic federal pattern: impeachment by the assembly (which serves as a sort of grand jury), trial before the Court.
Fortunately, only once has NYS impeached a governor: William Sulzer in 1913. At best, Sulzer could only be described as an irresponsible, power-hungry demagogue; but his real offense, the basic cause of his removal from office, was his attempt to take control of the state Democratic Party machine from Tammany Hall, headed by Charles F. (“Two-Spot”) Murphy, one of those political operatives who preferred the reality of power to its trappings, never running himself for public office. In August 1913, the Democratic-controlled Assembly, at Murphy’s bidding, impeached Governor Sulzer, ostensibly for the conversion of campaign funds to personal use before his election.
