Jerry Crew holding a Bigfoot cast
Today in 1960 the Houston Post reports Jerry Crew’s initial attempt to record the size and shape of the tracks he was finding. He traced the large track on paper and then took it to a taxidermist named Bob Titmus.
Although reported in 1960, the actual meeting between Mr. Crew and Mr. Titmus happened much earlier, it had to have happened before October 3, 1958. This was the date when Jerry Crew made the 16 inch cast shown in the photograph above. Let’s not get ahead of ourselves and we should start at the beginning.
Jerry Crew was a tractor operator on a road construction site in woods of Northern California. One day he found large 16 inch tracks that circled around his Caterpillar tractor. Bob Titmus was described by John Green in a eulogy as, “a key figure in Sasquatch/Bigfoot investigation for almost 40 years.” Mr. Titmus, a taxidermist, happened to be a friend and nearby when Jerry Crew found the tracks.
Read Bob Titmus’ recollection of what happened next and how he taught Mr. Crew how to make a cast out of plaster at Bigfoot Lunch Club.
