Amateur Archeologist. While removing a tree on his Kensington, Minnesota farm in 1898, he along with his son Carl Edward discovered what became known as the Kensington Runestone. Many people accused him of creating the stone for publicity purposes, but recent evidence is supporting it's authenticity as a 14th century artifact.
