True.

I found last night that Miss Heather uncovered one of the Times' articles a few years ago.

Marcia Albrecht

Wow! You research and post the most fascinating stories to go with you pictures. I love following your blog for just that reason.

Joe

Thank you!

Marie

I wonder where he went to the bathroom for ten years.

Joe

Almost all the articles I read skipped over that part. One said he used the food cans his mother passed to him.

Dane

What an amazing story. You dig up the best stuff and write it up so well.

Joe

He's buried in Linden New Jersey -- and left the bulk of his estate ($750,000) to the Field Museum of Natural History because he visited it once many years ago and enjoyed himself. I doubt there's a headstone. His lawyer was the only one to show up at his funeral.

Rob

I enjoyed that. Thank you.

I first learned about Makushak through canadian humorist Eric Nicol writing in 1950. Transcript here
