Dr. Jeff Meldrum

Dr. Jeff Meldrum is a Full Professor of Anatomy & Anthropology at Idaho State University (since 1993). His research centers on the evolution of hominin bipedalism. His interests in the footprints attributed to sasquatch came into focus when he personally examined a line of 15-inch tracks in the Blue Mountains of southeastern Washington, in 1996. Twenty-five years later, his lab houses well over 300 footprint casts attributed to relict hominoids around the world. He conducts collaborative laboratory and field research throughout North America, and internationally (e.g. China, Russia), and has spoken about his findings in numerous popular and professional publications, interviews, television appearances, public and professional presentations. He is author of Sasquatch: Legend Meets Science (Tom Doherty Publishers, 2006), which explores the contemporary scientific evidence for the reality of this legendary species, and also affords deference to tribal people’s traditional knowledge of this subject. In addition, he has published two field guides, one focusing on sasquatch, the second casting the net more broadly to consider the potential of relict hominoid species around the world (Paradise Cay Publishing, 2013, 2016). He is editor-in-chief of the scholarly refereed journal, The Relict Hominoid Inquiry 

(www.isu.edu/rhi), now in its seventh year.
