Vashon Island Giant

SKELETON OF A GIANT FOUND

While digging a posthole on the premises of S.S. Heath at Burton, Vashon Island, the other day Charles Christman found the skeleton of a giant, states a west side report. It measured 7 feet 6 inches in height and all the bones are large in proportion to their length, showing the person to have been a man of great weight. The skull has a transverse diameter of 7 1-2 inches and is 21 inches in circumference.  The skeleton was but 18 inches below the surface and had evidently laid in the ground for many years. Heath and Christman propose to sell the skeleton. Secretary Gilstrap of the State Historical Society believes it may be the remains of some early-day Hudson Bay tapper. Vashon Island Giant
