2017 Hemingway Festival at U Idaho

Stolen Elk Horns Returned

Anita Thompson has returned the trophy elk horns that her late husband, the gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson, stole from Hemingway’s house in Ketchum, Idaho, over 50 years ago.  As a young journalist in 1964, Thompson traveled to Idaho to write about Hemingway’s suicide and, taken with the antlers, left with more than a story.  Thompson remained embarrassed and remorseful about the theft and, in early August, his widow contacted the Ketchum Community Library in order to make preparations to return the trophy, which has been given to Seán Hemingway.
