Reminds me of what was found in the next-door neighbor's house after his suicide. (this was back in 1982): 2 tons worth of technical manuals, technical specs, publications of that nature in his attic. It was a wonder the house did not collapse! I know this because the deceased's niece and her family had the dubious honor of clearing it out and hauling it to the county dump (for lack of a better term), where, due to the load, the truck had to be weighed before and after it was unloaded.
I had a boss who was once written up by the safety department for the gerbil heaven that his office was. Old phone messages, notes, journals and god-knows-what-else was all over that area.
