During my time at Brown I have heard that the mysterious tunnels below our campus were used to smuggle slaves. I have been told rumors that they were also used to smuggle bootlegged booze during the prohibition period by members of organized crime operations. Furthermore, I have read that they were created in the event of a nuclear attack. Is any of this true? I plan to find out.
