LINK: Houdini and the Sea Monster

David Britland at Cardopolis has written an excellent account of Houdini's famous escape from a "sea monster" in Boston. It's very thorough and also provides fresh information about the turtle itself. I'm sorry I missed this back in 2021 when it first appeared, but I'm happy to have found it now.

  1. Britland wrote an interesting article! Thanks for posting it! Studying a historical figure can be an eye opener. I didn't know that turtle soup was on the menu over a 100 years ago. And squeezing into a large dead sea turtle couldn't have been fun at all. How the heck do you get out of that thing?
