The passengers aboard the S.S. Rotterdam, were inspected at Ellis Island on January 26, 1905. Peter Weissmüller, a 29-year-old laborer, arrived with his wife Elisabeth, and seven-month-old Johann (later Johnny) as steerage passengers. ⠀

After his olympic success, Weissmuller modeled underwear and swimsuits. He would become a Hollywood sensation portraying Tarzan in 12 motion pictures. He later appeared in over a dozen Jungle Jim film productions.⠀
