Title:
Landon Chronicles (1930): Siam: Dr. Bulkley's Tiger Skulls, Tiger Stories, and Years Later (hour 54, clip 13)
Date:
1930
Description:
Dr. Bulkley had a passion for animals. He really wanted to be a doctor for animals, not human beings. Kenneth tells the story of his first visit to the Bulkley's house. He noticed many tiger skulls sorted from smallest to biggest. He hunted them every full moon and showed pictures of it to Kenneth and told him tiger hunting stories (he actually bought many of them that others had shot). Margaret interjects to mention the story of the little old man hunting tigers. Kenneth resumes the story of Dr. Bulkley's hunting experience. He tells of a hunting session in which Dr. Bulkley wounded a tiger and traced the animal in the jungle with his fellow hunter until sunset. They decided to return to the car and suddenly the wounded animal came down from the top of an anthill onto the young hunter. Dr. Bulkley's gun accidently went off and killed the animal. The young hunter was wounded at the shoulder and spent weeks in a hospital recovering from surgery. Kenneth taught him to read during the time he was hospitalized and the hunter became the national deputy minister for education. He was in Washington, D.C. in the late 1950s and called on Kenneth to reconnect with him. He had remembered Kenneth all these years. (Length 16:39)
