CJ man recreates missing mammoth skeleton

CARL JUNCTION, Mo. — Carl Junction finally has a mammoth skeleton once again.

OK, so it’s made of foam. But it is representative, says its creator, Marv Dahmen, of the mammoth fossils found in a mine on land belonging to Carl Junction businessman Silas A. Stuckey in 1892.

They would make their way to the Columbian Exposition of the Chicago World’s Fair in 1893, where one was reputed to be one of the largest ever found.

Find out what happened to them and how and why Dahmen created his replica in  Wednesday’s Joplin Globe.
