Who Was the Real Indiana Jones?
Ask most explorers and they’ll tell you the inspiration for Indiana Jones was Roy Chapman Andrews (1884 – 1960).
Who was the real inspiration for the cinematic character Indiana Jones? That question has been nagging us for 28 years since we first established Expedition News as a fax to friends. The image of the fedora, binoculars and bullwhip is so iconic, it’s pictured on Scouting’s Exploration merit badge.”
