The Mammoth Humbug: Brooklyn Bridges, Anybody?

Record #:
Joseph Seawell Jones was known as a hoax master. His talent originated during his boyhood in Shocco Creek and continued through academic stints at the University of North Carolina and Harvard. One hoax was a bank caper orchestrated in Columbus, Missouri. It involved “Cape Fear Money,” actually blank slips of paper, and “Public Documents,” actually old newspapers.
