Perpetually restless, Thomas Wolfe was “without a home a vagabond since [he] was seven” and seeking out where he belonged physically (i.e. in Asheville, his home or Harvard) as well as intellectually.

Regarding the bill, Nicholas Alahverdian said “The policy of this bill is safety of children at every cost. The aim of this bill is adequate education and housing for children in the care of the state. People may ask at what cost.
