www.uacc.org [cached]

On July 14, 1998, the UACC Ethics Board voted to expel from membership William Linehan, PO Box 1225, Concord, NH 03302.Mr. Linehan was expelled for failing to respond to official correspondence from the Ethics Board regarding a complaint filed by another member.Because Mr. Linehan failed to file an appeal with the UACC President within 30 days of receiving the notice of his expulsion, the expulsion is now final and the matter closed.

Note: Mr. Linehan also was removed from his position as a UACC regional director by the UACC President effective July 1, 1998.

The answer, it is now clear, lies within William Linehan.' The story goes on to say: 'Yesterday, Linehan stood before a judge in Concord District Court and claimed responsibility for the missing pages in more than 300 books.Dressed in a dapper beige sport coat and slacks, the lithe 57 year old Concord resident entered a plea of guilty to criminal mischief and agreed to pay a fine of $1,200.00 and restitution to the library.In an interview afterward, Linehan described the theft as a 'mental error at a time when I was under a lot of pressure'.But he said he was at a loss to articulate a distinct reason for stealing the book pages.The police and prosecutors, however, have a clear-cut theory.They say Linehan, a professional autograph collector by trade, stole the front and back pages of books because they are the perfect canvas for forged signatures.For one, they point out, the pages are blank.But more importantly, they say, because the pages are of a specific vintage, they can give a forged signature the appearance of authenticity'.Linehan disputed this theory by calling it a smear campaign and little more than speculation. 'I can see the connection.I can see why they're saying it.All I can do is deny it', Linehan said.The paper also reported that Linehan said that in the coming weeks he will likely be scaling back his autograph collecting business to a part-time venture.He said he plans to branch into "something else", but declined to specify what.

Bill Linehan was the Region 1 Regional Director for the UACC before he was removed from the position by President Bob Erickson, prior to his expulsion from the UACC.A new twist to his story was published in the October 14, 1998 Concord Monitor Newspaper in a column titled Prosecutors throw the book at library vandal'.The story reads, in part It seemed to consistent not to be calculated.Too damaging not to be prosecuted.But most of all, it seemed too odd to be true.Why, after all, would anyone methodically remove the front and back pages from scores of Concord Library books ranging from volumes of literary criticism to scientific encyclopedias? The answer, it is now clear, lies within William Linehan.'
