Postage stamp commemorating David Thompson’s Life and reputation as a mapmaker

Today in 1811, marks the first recorded account of overly large foot prints in North America by a non-native person. The honor goes to David Thompson, a British-Canadian fur trader, surveyor, and map-maker, who was known for keeping detailed records. On January 7th, 1811, Mr. Thompson found curious tracks in the snow near Jasper, Alberta. He described the tracks as 14 inch long footprints 6 inches deep in the snow.

You can read David Thompson’s journal entry at Bigfoot Lunch Club.
