From Kook Science
As seen in the 6 Dec. 1913 ed. of the Ogden Standard (Ogden, UT)
Thomas Siebler was an American wild man, referred to as the "original human beehive" (from his maintenance of a beehive in his self-carved wooden leg and stove pipe hat) in a report relating to his crossing paths with Elliott W. Major, then-governor of Missouri, and others involved in a Randolph County, Missouri raccoon hunt on the night of 4 November 1913.
