Howard Carter was an Ekaterina branch member who lived from 1874 to 1939. He was most famous for his discovery of King Tut's tomb in 1922. He shared with his ancestor Katherine Cahill a fascination of Egypt. Carter believed that she had hidden a clue there. He was so desperate to find the clue he risked the Curse of the Pharaohs but nothing stopped him. Interestingly enough, when he opened Tut's tomb, many people on Carter's team died afterward.

Involvement in the Clue hunt

Carter thought Katherine had left hints for the clue in four different statues of the goddess Sakhet. He looked and looked, but Carter never found the last Sakhet. Sixteen years after he had discovered the still famous tomb, he died, but his name lives on today.
