The last time I interviewed somebody at the Liberty Hotel it
was known as the Charles Street Jail. That was about 25 years ago and the
subject of the interview was a white-bearded, sleight, elderly fellow known to
some as "The Globe Man" -- not for any journalistic reason, but because he used
to ride around Harvard Square in an old station wagon inscribed with countless
cryptic writings and surmounted by a huge, papier maché world globe, about eight
feet in diameter.
