FOUND IN FLORIDA.
Discovery of a skull, one-fourth larger than that of the normal modern, together with the bones indicating a probable height of not less than seven feet, leads to speculation over theories of a giant race believed to have once inhabited Florida. The portions of the skeleton were found by workmen grading a road near the Charlotte and Lee county lines. The bones are believed to be those of male. The specimens are to be shipped to the Smithsonian Institution. Lee and Charlotte.

After bones and artifcacts were shipped from another museum, or from a private party, the Smithsonian then proceeded to “sit on them” for a long, long time.
