An interesting passage is found on page 375 of Notices of Judgment Under the Food and Drugs Act: Issue 6001; Issue 7000:

On April 4, 1917, the United States attorney for the District of New Hampshire, acting upon a report by the Secretary of Agriculture, filed in the District Court of the United States for said district an information against Philo Wilbur, East Westmoreland, N. 11., alleging shipment by said defendant, on or about March 13, 1916, and March 15, 1916, from the State of New Hampshire into the State of Massachusetts, of quantities of milk which was adulterated. Analyses of samples of the articles by the Bureau of Chemistry of this department showed the following results:
[...lengthy table omitted...]
The milk has been watered. Adulteration of the article in each shipment was alleged in the information for the reason that a substance, to wit, water, had been mixed and packed therewith, so as to lower or reduce and injuriously affect its quality, and had been substituted in part for milk, which the article purported to be.
On May 9, 1918, the defendant entered a plea of guilty to the information, and the court imposed a. fine of $10. .

His death certificate indicates that he was an inmate at Maplewood House for 3 years and 10 months before his death.
