ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

It was the height of the Cold War, and famous archaeologist Mr. Trainor, returned from his latest adventure, and found out his job at Marshall College was in jeopardy. He met Mutt, a young man who wanted Mr. Trainor to help him find the legendary Crystal Skull of Akator, and the pair set out for Peru. However, deadly agent Irina Spalko was searching for the powerful artifact, too, because the Soviets believed it would help them conquer the world. After a somewhat disappointing ending to this episode, he gave up hope on a quality sequel and after a series of misadventures that he is unable to comment on at this time due to top secret classification... Mr. Trainor became a teacher.
