Your Daily Giant 1/5/2013

Here is an account of the unearthing of an 8 to 9 foot skeleton by the director of the Carnegie, Leyden Tribune, June 30th 1921. One of main arguments of skeptics is that the finder did not understand human anatomy and could not measure correctly, do you think this guy might have understood anatomy?
William Jacob Holland (August 16, 1848 – December 13, 1932) was the eighth Chancellor of the University of Pittsburgh (1891–1901) and Director of the Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh. He was an accomplished zoologist and paleontologist, as well as an ordained Presbyterian minister. As director of the Carnegie Museums, Holland achieved international renown for supervising the mounting of several casts of the sauropod dinosaur Diplodocus, a donation by Carnegie to natural history museums throughout Europe.
This giant skeleton account occurred elsewhere including being listed in the Pennsylvania Federation of Historical Societies Acts and Proceedings ... Annual Meeting, Volume 12, Part 1917 page 139.
