Wild Man Is Said To Rule Unexplored Empire



Anchorage, Alaska, Jan. 19, 1935


Out of the Isolated district north of Bristol Bay comes a tale of the Wild Man of the Nashagak – a nebulous terror jealously guarding an empire which, even on the larger maps is an unexplored white patch with dotted lines for streams.


Charles J. Dumbolton, sourdough prospector of many years in Yukon and Klondike Valley camps, told the story today after arriving by plane from a region of prospecting 123 miles from the nearest settlement.


The wild man is believed in so firmly by the few men in the area, that they have drawn a voluntary boundary to their northern trips.  And, while he made no effort to investigate the wild man’s authenticity, Dumbolten said he found trappers feared to venture beyond their own established frontier, the King Salmon River.


He said the wild man, perhaps some creature crazed by loneliness, has been reported seen several times, and is blamed for the disappearance of several men who have ventured in the region of the Upper Nashagak and its tributaries the past several seasons.


The wild man’s empire is a vast region between the south flowing Upper Nashagak and the westward flowing middle course of the Kushkokwim.
