According to a post by University of Chicago on its official Tumblr page today, Tuesday, the Indiana Jones package, a replica of Marion Ravenwood‘s journal in the Indiana Jones movie, was owned by “Ravenbar” (real name: Paul, from Guam), who placed the item on eBay auction and was sold last last October 24.
“After several days we were able to get in touch with Paul, who confirmed with us on Saturday that this was, indeed, his work, but that he did not know how it had gotten to us.” A statement reads at UChicagoAdmissions.tumblr.com, noting that he informed them that he received a letter from the USPS sorting service in Honolulu, Hawaii.
“According to Paul (the man from USPS), this package was en route from him in Guam to his intended recipient in Italy when it must have fallen out of the package in Hawaii. Our address had originally been put on the Manila wrapping of the journal just for cosmetic effect.” The statement added.
“Paul has graciously let us know that he will make the intended recipient a new journal, and that we are welcome to keep this one.” The university further stated, noting that Ravenwood‘s journal replica may be placed in their upcoming exhibit in Oriental Institute at University of Chicago.
