Robert Ripley, 1890 - 1949, cartoonist, entrepreneur and mainly a very avid anthropologist, known for creating the Ripley’s Believe It or Not!” museums, newspaper series, radio and television show, which featured odd facts and even living creatures from around the world. His shows were sometimes under water or up in the sky when not seeking out the fascinating and the strange on the ground. His pursuits created such attractions as Ripley’s Aquarium, Ripley’s Believe It or Not Museums, Ripley’s Haunted Adventures, sightseeing trains and Guinness World Records. As the book written about him rightfully claims, he was “A Curious Man”. Here is a very fine 3-1/2 x 5-1/2” note page signed, “With all the best R.Ripley __________”Believe it or not”.
