Preparations are underway for the exhibition at the National Oregon Trail Museum in Montpelier, Idaho, for June 1 through October 15, 2012.
Jeff Meldrum, Ph. D. of Idaho State University and author of Sasquatch: Legend Meets Science, is frequently seen on the Discovery Channel, History, and the National Geographic Channel, among others. His book is the companion volume to the highly successful Discovery Channel documentary of the same name. A professor of anatomy and anthropology, his work encompasses the evaluation of hominid footprints, including those attributed to Sasquatch, both in the lab and the field. He is on the Advisory Board of the International Cryptozoology Museum.
Jeff will be speaking on the evenings of June 1 and 2, 2012. Both his presentations will be at 7:30 p.m. on the two nights.
Jeff will be greeting folks at his table, signing books and making casts available for study, from 1:00 – 5:00p.m. on both days.
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.
