Ramblings on Frank Lloyd Wright, While Running the International Cryptozoology Museum

Posted by: Loren Coleman on June 27th, 2012

In 2010, Roadside America interviewed me about the International Cryptozoology Museum. We were in our old space, and I could feel the exhaustion and constraints of being there.

The museum, founded in 2003, had moved to a central city location, and Roadside America came calling. It is interesting to review some of my words from that interview:

“I really didn’t know what I was getting myself into,” Loren admitted, after opening the museum [in the back of a bookstore in downtown Portland] in November 2009. “But I’ve got a lot of energy for someone who’s 62. I’m hanging in there.”
…“I want to follow the Frank Lloyd Wright model and live to be 93,” he said with a laugh. “That way I can see the museum grow into a bigger space.”

Of course, I have lived, already, to see that we’ve moved into a larger location, by a factor of times five, at 11 Avon Street, Portland, Maine. But I’ve still got about 30 years of work to do.

As to my intrigue with Frank Lloyd Wright, it continues too. See my new Twilight Language posting, “Frank Lloyd Wright and Synchromysticism” for more.


The museum even has a little display nod to FLW’s Fallingwater and other architecture from locations I’ve visited on my cryptozoological investigative treks, television treatments, and speaking trips.

About Loren Coleman
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading. 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.

    The one thing about Frank Lloyd Wright was that he developed a “I’m always right kind” of attitude in his later years. Your Twilight article was interesting but along with all the associated deaths a counter point could be the opening day of the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo in 1923 the same day as the 7.9 earthquake which took the rest of the city. Keep busy…
