Special Containment Procedures
SCP-3872 is to be contained in a standard humanoid containment cell furnished with furniture predating 1930, to minimize distress to SCP-3872. Additional requests may be approved by Dr. Jamesson as required.
The following items were requested, and approved by Dr. Jamesson on the grounds of the improvement of SCP-3872's mental stability:
- A phonograph. A modern replica was approved, and provided to SCP-3872 for use during recreation hours. Several period-appropriate records have been provided.
- Several fountain pens, and notebooks. Modern reproductions of vintage-style fountain pens were provided, with an assortment of modern inks.
Psychological counseling sessions shall take place with Dr. Jamesson on a biweekly basis.
Under no circumstances is SCP-3872 to be informed of the existence of, nor introduced in any fashion to, SCP-2045.
SCP-3872 is William Henry Seward, US Secretary of State from 1861 to 1869, and appears to be biologically immortal. SCP-3872 is, at this time, biologically 56 years of age. SCP-3872 has shown no visible or medical signs of aging. SCP-3872 possesses no other anomalous abilities or attributes.
Historical records indicate the William Henry Seward died in 1872; however, recovered records from ASCI Site 22 have indicated that SCP-3872 has been in containment for an indeterminate amount of time. SCP-3872 shows signs of significant mental deterioration, hypothesized to be due to isolation within the American Secure Containment Initiative (ASCI) Site-22 for somewhere between 75 and 80 years. Logs of psychological evaluation by Dr. Jamesson can be found in Addendum B.
According to conflicting ASCI Records, SCP-3872 was first put in to containment somewhere between 1920 and 1926. Containment was determined to be necessary, after SCP-3872 was confirmed to be involved in the 1919 "Great Molasses Flood"1 in Boston, which released 2.3 million gallons of molasses causing 21 deaths, and a significant number of injuries. SCP-3872 has claimed that it caused the flood in order to prevent the use of molasses in consumer goods.
