Can you help find Tarzan?

An Antique Trader reader wants to Tarzan. Not the famous Johnny Weismuller or Buster Crabbe, Jock Mahoney or even Elmo Lincoln, who portrayed Tarzan in the silent film Tarzan the Mighty.

This reader is looking for Frank Merrill. Merrill starred in a Universal Studios serial in the 1920s – Tarzan of the Apes – also starring Natalie Kingston. The search has been on for the serial Tarzan the Mighty for 50 years. That, and anything else about Frank Merrill is needed by the Burroughs Bibliophiles who are hoping to add to the vast Edgar Rice Burroughs exhibit at the University of Kentucky library.

If you have information, memorabilia or even the serial itself, contact Roger Bailey, Box 468, Almont, MI 48803.
