Records mistakenly destroyed

According to the Sentinel, Milwaukee Journal several hundred boxes of records from the Tommy G. Thompson administration earmarked for the Wisconsin Historical Society/ for archiving instead were mistakenly destroyed, officials said Monday.

Tom Solberg, a spokesman for the state Department of Administration, confirmed that the records, which were stored at a state warehouse, were inadvertently put on the wrong truck and sent to a Green Bay paper mill, where the paper was turned into pulp. The records were supposed to go to the historical society in Madison.
