He purchased a deactivated robot Yeti from Professor Edward Travers, who had acquired it in Tibet in 1935. Forty years later, Travers — having succeeded in reactivating a Yeti control sphere, which later vanished — went to Silverstein and requested that he return the Yeti, warning him of the danger. However, Silverstein refused to listen and sent for Travers' daughter Anne to take her father away.
After Travers left with Anne, Silverstein started to blow out the candles in the museum, but heard a window break in the room where the Yet was displayed. Silverstein thought it was Travers, but unknown to him, it was the reactivated control sphere. He went to investigate, but was attacked and killed by the reactivated Yeti. (TV: The Web of Fear)
