Meldrum and Gimlin at Washington State History Museum

Fans, we just received an important friendly reminder from Kimberly Adams,
public relations coordinator for the Washington State History Museum in Tacoma.

Dr. Jeffrey Meldrum and Robert Gimlin at the
Washington State History Museum June 5th

What: Sasquatch: The Sightings, the Science, the Stories

When: June 5 @ 10:30 a.m.

Where: Washington State History Museum in Tacoma
1911 Pacific Ave

Cost: $18 includes museum admission and program. Museum member price $10.

Background: Two giants of Sasquatch research will be at the museum hosting an audience discussion of all things Sasquatch. Dr. Jeffrey Meldrum and Robert Gimlin will be discussing their collected evidence, taking audience questions, and meeting with attendees.

Dr. Jeffrey Meldrum, of Idaho State University and author of Sasquatch: Legend Meets Science, is frequently seen on the Discovery Channel, the History Channel, and the National Geographic Channel among others. His book is the companion volume to the highly successful Discovery Channel documentary of the same name. A professor of anatomy and anthropology, his work encompasses the evaluation of hominid footprints, including those attributed to Sasquatch, both in the lab and the field. The Giants in the Mountains: The Search for Sasquatch exhibit features casts Dr. Meldrum made in Eastern Washington.

Robert Gimlin and the late Roger Patterson filmed the infamous piece of Sasquatch evidence known as the Patterson-Gimlin film, notably frame 352, made in northern California. This film features a female Bigfoot striding next to a sandy creek. Expedition partner Robert Gimlin will discuss his experience on the Bluff Creek expedition and the famous encounter on the trail, made immortal in the 24 feet of film Patterson recorded.
