School Solves Indiana Jones Mystery

CHICAGO,  (UPI) —  The University of Chicago said an Indiana Jones replica prop ended up at the school because of an included replica envelope, complete with fake postage.

The university said admissions officials were initially perplexed to receive a package addressed to “Henry Walton Jones, Jr.” the full name of movie hero Indiana Jones, and containing a replica of fictional professor Abner Ravenwood’s journal from “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” the Chicago Tribune reported Tuesday.

However, officials said they have now learned the journal had been placed in a replica envelope meant to look like the one from the film before being shipped in a larger package by an eBay seller in Guam who specializes in Indiana Jones replicas.

The envelope containing the journal had fallen out of the package during shipping to Italy and the post office simply sent it along to the address on the envelope.

“What we can piece together, the postal service honored the postage, which happens to be fake,” university senior admissions adviser Grace Chapin said.

“We’ve been so amused that other people have thought this was so funny,” she said. “This is how fun the world is at this point, something being sent from Guam to Italy and it finds its way to us.”

Chapin said the eBay seller told officials the school can keep the journal.
