Human Giants Skull Discovered on Vancouver Island B.C., is Donated to the Smithsonian Institution

Human Giants Skull Discovered on Vancouver Island, B.C.,  Donated to the Smithsonian

    Captain Newton H. Chittenden of Santa Barbara, California, yesterday presented to the Smithsonian Institution the skull of an aboriginal giant, which he found on the southern shore of Vancouver Island, B. C., about a week ago.  The specimen which is that of a Flathead Indians was obtained by the owner at great personal risk, and he has long treasured it as priceless.  It has been the object of great interest among the may European anthropologists who have  seen it and many have offered great sums to tempt Capt. Chittenden to part with it, but until yesterday he persistently declined.
