It’s not often that the New York Times runs an story about someone being not-murdered, but here you have it:
New York Times, May 19, 1914
NORDENSKJOLD IS SAFE Swedish Explorer in South America Not Murdered by Indians Berlin – May 18 – Baron Erland von Nordenskjold, the leader of a Swedish South American exploring expedition, who was reported to have been killed by Indians on March 14, is safe. The news of the Baron’s escape from the Indians reached here to-day in a letter from Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia, dated March 21, which reported his arrival at Trinidad, the capital of the Bolivian Department of Beni.
Erland Nordenskiöld (or Nordenskjöld) was an Swedish geologist, paleontologist, linguist and anthropologist, son of the Baron Adolf Erik, discoverer of the Northwest passage. He traveled throughout Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Panama and Columbia from 1898 through 1927, writing a number of books, all of which continue to be valued, out-of-print titles today.
