  27. 27. *Q8.IDXorY. News of the World's Columbian Exposition to be held in 1893, in Chicago, Illinois, drew X to the city. In 1891, the directors of the World's Columbian Exposition issued a challenge to American engineers to conceive of a monument for the fair that would surpass the Eiffel Tower, the great structure of the Paris International Exposition of 1889. The planners wanted something "original, daring and unique." X returned with the idea of a Y. The planners feared his design for Y but still X persisted. X returned in a few weeks with several respectable endorsements from established engineers, and the committee agreed to allow construction to begin. Most convincingly, he had recruited several local investors to cover the $400,000 cost of construction. The planning commission of the Exposition hoped that admissions from the Y would pull the fair out of debt and eventually make it profitable. After the fair closed, X claimed that the exhibition management had robbed him and his investors of their rightful portion of the nearly $750,000 profit that his Y brought in. He spent the next two years in litigation.

IdentifyX. „Grey Wolf: The Escape Of X‟ a book by British authors Gerrard Williams and Simon Dunstan believe evidence of the X‟s suicide is flawed and X faked his own suicide and fled to Argentina where he lived until a ripe old age. They go on to state that X with his wife had two daughters before he died in 1962 at the age of 73. The book quotes a number of sources, such as cooks and doctors, who claim to have known X before he died aged 73. They claim that X's bloodline survived through two daughters he had with his wife. It is not the first time that X has been rumoured to have fled to Argentina. Author Abel Basti claimed the same in his 2003 book X In Argentina. Mr Williams, a historian and journalist said – “We didn‟t want to re-write history, but the evidence we‟ve discovered about the escape of X is just too overwhelming to ignore. There is no forensic evidence for his or his wife‟s death , and the stories from the eyewitnesses of their continued survival in Argentina are compelling” While other leading historian Guy Walters branded the story as „2,000 per cent rubbish.‟
