Laban Shrewsbury (1864-1938?). Miskatonic University professor of philosophy and anthropologist. Shrewsbury was born in Wisconsin, but spent much of his life in Arkham, where he occasionally taught at Miskatonic University. Professor Shrewsbury made himself a controversial figure with the publication of his first book, An Investigation into the Myth-Patterns of Latter-Day Primitives with Especial Reference to the R'lyeh Text. In 1915, shortly after the release of his book, Shrewsbury disappeared while walking upon a country lane near his hometown. He was given up for dead, and his collected notes on the latter nineteenth century were printed under the title Cthulhu Among The Victorians. Twenty years after he had vanished, the professor reappeared, giving no account as to where he had been. Having taken up residence once again in Arkham, he began work on his next book, Cthulhu In The Necronotnicon. Sadly, the professor never completed this volume. A mysterious fire gutted Shrewsbury's house in 1938; the professor was presumed dead in the blaze. It is believed that he worked with the OSS during the Second World War but vanished mysteriously once again. A person of the same name, however, was teaching at Miskatonic University as late as 1987. The Plastic Wax Factory, purveyors of intricate and fine molten effigies. All your gods, demons, devils, angels, monsters and feye folk, creatures of the abyss to Leech Lords of the Cthulhu mythos, witches, warlocks, and lunatic residents of asylums the world over still murmuring their arcane incantations. All are represented here in glorious molten plastic wax, set alight and melted into puddles of primordial grotesquerie. Recommended for the mad and delirious and those fine folks from Leeds, Hull and Scarborough.
