Last Year First Ever
Reported This Far North
In a paper prepared by H. H.
Brimley, curator of the state museum
at Raleigh and printed in
' the August issue of the Elisha

Mr. Brimley says that the whale
shark (Rhineodon Typus) discov1

eral miles below Wilmington last
I June was the first of its species
J to be reported so far north on
1 the Atlantic coast.
J A copy of the paper, reprinted
in phamplet form, was sent to
W. B. Keziah, who gave statewide
publicity to the finding of
the water monster.
In it he tells of the history of
the 50-foot whale shark ashore
near the Quarantine Station at
Southport and its offer to the
j museum. It was in such a dej
composed state, however, that it
i was not accepted.
