From the Fleet Society Archives — May 30, 1962 — Sebastian Man Wins Treasure Hunt Title

Here is a very interesting article I found while searching through some old documents. It is a newspaper article (source unknown after a diligent search) that references the Treasure Trove Club. This club was founded in 1938 and each year gave an award (Mr. Treasure Hunter) to a leading personality in the treasure-hunting field. The recipient in 1962 was Kip Wagner. He was preceded by a long list of famous explorers as outlined in the article.
