Congratulations, Jeff Meldrum!

Posted by: Loren Coleman on January 27th, 2009

Today, January 27, 2009, is “Down the Rabbit Hole” day, when bloggers are encouraged to post in a different style from their accustomed one. I don’t think I’ve ever made an announcement like the following, so I guess this will have to do for “Rabbit Hole” day for me.

I was asked to keep the news private and I respected that request. However, as now others have decided to leak the news across the Bigfoot web world, allow me to congratulate Jeff and his new wife, Lauren!

Jeff Meldrum and Lauren Stewart were married on January 17, 2009.

No biographical information is available about Lauren Stewart, to date.

Jeff Meldrum

Jeff Meldrum, Ph. D., Idaho State University, of course, is the author of Sasquatch: Legend Meets Science, New York: Forge Books (Macmillan), 2006.

Many happy returns to the new couple.

Loren Coleman About Loren Coleman
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.

    Happy news, indeed!

    Best wishes to the new couple!

  4. DWA responds:

    I don’t believe it. She could be superimposed. Photos can deceive.

    It could even be an ape, in a suit.

    (You might not want Dr. Meldrum to read this.)

    Was the site checked for sign? Too many people forget site investigation. If this were a video, even film shot with a home movie camera, there might be more to see. But I can’t go with just a photo here.

    Provisional congratulations. But this is only evidence. I await expert review, and proof. Was the justice of the peace interviewed? Followup. Followup.

    Congratulations to the beautiful couple.

    So where was the Honey Moon: British Columbia, Nepal, Borneo? 😉

  9. RocKiteman responds:

    Maybe the honeymoon was in Bluff Creek, California….


  10. Sennsquatch responds:

    Congratulations Dr. Meldrum…may your marriage be a happy one and may your beautiful new wife be as tolerant and understanding of your important sasquatch research as mine is to my obsession with all things Bigfoot!

  11. Megatherium responds:

    A very belated congratulations to the Good Doctor and his lovely wife Lauren. Lauren? I would suggest that Jeff is quite a “catch” as they say.

    I met Jeff at the Texas Bigfoot Conference in Jefferson a number of years ago and we had a great chat. For a man who could arguably be considered one of the most important and knowledgeable in the field of bigfoot locomotion…indeed maybe bigfoot research overall – I found Jeff to be one of the most friendly and polite gentlemen I’ve ever met – especially considering the reputation many PhDs have for being pompous bastards. Jeff was none of that and reminded me of a guy who would gladly pull over and help you change your spare tire if you had that need.

    Dr. Meldrum was genuinely interested in my interest in the bigfoot topic during our chat and demonstrated that after he kindly signed my copy of Legend Meets Science.

    I’m looking forward to one day shaking his hand again.
