The real father of Indiana Jones?

I meet some very interesting people as I ride around Lake Worth on my BOOKCYCLE. One of my favorite regular book customers is often called the real “father of Indiana Jones”.

Professor James Starrs is a world famous forensic anthropologist, author and law professor at George Washington University in Washington, DC, and bears a striking resemblance to actor Sean Connery. He and his wife spend the winters here in a condo on the beach. I see them around town and the beach a few times per week and always have an enjoyable chat with them. They’re both Irish-Americans and like to share great stories, just like yours truly.

Here’s a link to a fascinating profile about Professor Starrs and some of his famous “tomb raiding” adventures:
