Filson Young was a European journalist during the 20th century. Best known for his work about the Titanic shortly after its sinking, he also wrote this sketch on the life and discoveries of Christopher Columbus.

Ironically, the Italian had led a Spanish expedition, in part because the Portugese rejected his offers in the belief that sailing west to Asia would take too long.
