Indy for real?

Recently I heard a public radio story about a real-life Indiana Jones who coincidentally hails out of Yale University where some of the Marshall College vehicle chase scenes in Indy 4 were filmed. Hiram Bingham III discovered and studied Peruvian artifacts and Machu Picchu (also coincidental, but maybe not, to the setting of Indy 4) in the early 20th century. There is some amazingly similar legend and lore surrounding Bingham, just like a real-life Indiana Jones. Listen to the story and read more from NPR/WBUR's On Point with Tom Ashbrook.
