Yale: "We're Satisfied"

The ever-vigilant Everett Wilkie notes a press release from Yale dated August 1, in response to news reports which lumped that institution with the BL, Harvard and the BPL in believing that E. Forbes Smiley stole more maps from them than he's admitted to:

"Several recent news stories have mischaracterized Yale University's views regarding the federal investigation of map thefts by E. Forbes Smiley. Yale is confident that the FBI and the U.S. Attorney's Office have conducted a thorough investigation of the thefts, and the University is grateful for the extraordinary efforts that the federal authorities have made to recover maps stolen from Yale."
