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.

    Way to go Loren and Dr. Jeff, You guys are my top two Cryptozoologists. Good job Loren on Mysterious America. I wish you both well and keep up the good work.

    I’m also happy that our pal Sasquatch made the top cryptid pick of the year.

    Happy Holidays everyone. I’m looking forward to another good year of posting here at Cryptomundo.

    I am new to this site and I love it. Congrats to you! I enjoy your cameos on TV too.

    2008 will be the year of Bigfoot…Mark my words…I just feel it. This is the year that something BIG will happen, excuse the pun.

    Good job!

    Congratulations Loren! You deserve it all! I appreciate what you and the others mentioned have done for the field and I still think Cryptomundo is hands down the finest cryptozoology site around. Keep up the good work!

    Hi, Loren. This is Henry May. My readers made some great decisions this year, and I really want to commemorate them for voting. They are the ones who made the SSA Awards possible, and I want to thank them again. Congratulations, Loren and Cryptomundo!!!

  11. Ayala responds:

    WoW! Congrats on the honors!!! 🙂 We already know you’re AWESOME! 🙂

  12. DARHOP responds:

    ^5 & congats Loren & Jeff! You are in great company. If I had to be in a tie for Cryptozoologist of the year. It would be an honor for it to be with someone like Jeff Meldrum or Loren Coleman. And I’m not surprized that the Biguns got Cryptid of the year. Very Kool. Glad Cryptomundo got site of the year. Don’t see that changing anytime soon. Over all it’s been a great year for cryptozoology. Hopefully next year will be better. Hopefully thehoch is right, 08 will be the year. That would be awesome. I have a question? What makes one a Bigfooter? Cuz, Steve Kulls, I’m coming after your title. (Just kidding)

    Really though. What makes one a Bigfooter? Is it someone who spend alot of time in the bush and does alot of research. Collects cast and what not? That’s what I gather a Bigfooter is. Anyway, again hi five Loren & Jeff on the tie. This site rocks!

  13. peterbernard responds:

    haha Loren, nothing could humble you. You’re the Santa Claus of Cryptozoology for the whole current generation of kids out there.

  14. squatchdetective responds:

    I must say I am quite humbled and surprised to be bestowed these honors as well. Congrats to Loren, Jeff & Cryptomundo as well. Thanks everyone and for your support.

  15. CamperGuy responds:

    Woo Hoo!

    Well done and well deserved.
