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, 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 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.
