Loren Coleman, Cryptozoologist, in Portland, Maine

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.

    Nice interview, Loren. You are definitely an interesting person. BTW, I watched HALF-HUMAN again last evening. Sure wish I could’ve seen the original version, which I guess doesn’t exist anymore. Keep up the great work.

  2. Andrew Minnesota responds:

    Thanks for sharing this Loren and being so honest. It was very interesting to read (even though some of the questions thrown at you weren’t so great)

  3. red_pill_junkie responds:

    I am sometimes in deep turmoil because I never went on for a Ph. D., but I am very happy, in my life and mind, that I picked being a good Dad, over that degree.

    And that’s why you will graduate Magna Cum Laude from this life, Loren 🙂

    Cool interview Loren. Always nice to learn more about you and your “history”.

    On a related subject – I cut my education/career plans kinda short for the benefit of spending more time with my wife and two sons. I graduated with a degree in engineering and applied to medical school and was accepted. To make a long story short I will just say that I knew and had first hand evidence that the time commitment would have put too much strain on my marriage and I would have had no time for my sons if I pursued becoming a surgeon, so I declined my acceptance and decided that working as an engineer and having time with my family was far more important. I’ve never regretted the decision.
