The "Blonde Eskimo"

From the Daily Alaskan, August 29, 1913


        EDMONTON, Aug. 29 -- The noted trapper Deschambeault arrived here this morning from the arctic regions. He claims to be the original discoverer of the blonde Eskimo, and says it was he that sent word to Stefannson regarding their existence.
        Deschambeault sent word to Stefannson immediately upon his discovery of the white race, and now claims that the latter claimed the discovery for his own, thus robbing the trapper of the glory connected with his find. He denounces the explorer as a fraud.
