THE TRAGEDY OF MICHAEL ROCKEFELLER: No overview of the year 1961 is complete without some mention of the mysterious disappearance of Michael Rockefeller, an ethnographer, son of New York governor Nelson Rockefeller and scion of one of America's wealthiest families. He went missing in the Asmat region of southwestern Netherlands New Guinea in November 1961. Despite rumors of cannibalism, the mystery of his disappearance has never been solved.
In the new book, “Savage Harvest: A Tale of Cannibals, Colonialism and Michael Rockefeller’s Tragic Quest for Primitive Art,” veteran journalist Carl Hoffman unveils significant evidence that 23-year-old Michael Rockefeller died at the hands of headhunters, and not at sea, late in 1961.
