Don Keating’s next Ohio Bigfoot Conference/Expo is creeping up on us. It is scheduled for May 15, 2010, and the following poster is more recent than the older speakers list on their website, as of today.
Also, I’ve learned that next week Leigh Hart will broadcast his shockomentary looking inside last year’s Ohio Bigfoot gathering. As you will recall (search this site for more), Hart posed as a documentary filmmaker who was seriously interested in Bigfoot research. His motives were something else, altogether, and New Zealand television will see the first of what he has produced. I’ll report on what is televised, as soon as more is learned.
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.
