Today in Bigfoot History | 1960 | Millionaire and Father of Cryptozoology take a Break from the Himalayas

Bigfoot Lunch Club

Abominable Snowman, Millionaire Tom Slick, and Father of Cryptozoology Ivan T. Sanderson

Today in 1960, The Houston Post Correspondent announced two of the greatest explorers were going to try and look for the Snowman, as in Abominable Snowman, in North America after several prior expeditions in the Himalayas.

These two explorers are familiar to many crypto-enthusiasts as Tom Slick, a San Antonio millionaire and Ivan T. Sanderson, known as the Father of Cryptozoology.

Before Bluff Creek and the Patterson/Gimlin film, the Himalayas was where it was at. If you wanted to get a chance to see a bipedal undiscovered primate, you went to a mountain range in Asia.
