Batavia (Illinois) Herald, Sept. 24, 1908

While pearl fishing in the Fox river just below the Chicago street bridge, Dr. Fred Scidmore of Elgin found a clam shell last Tuesday afternoon in which were 342 pearls. All were pure white in color and averaged three-eighths of a carat in size. Dr. Scidmore, who is a veterinary, went to Chicago to learn the value of his find.
