Scott McClean

Scott in the Cascades in May, 2005

It is with great sadness that I share the news that researcher, witness, and friend Scott McClean has lost his battle with cancer.

Scott was the first and best at mining historical archives for newspaper reports detailing sasquatch encounters dating all the way back to the early 1800's.  His interest in the subject was spurred by seeing a juvenile sasquatch run across the road in front of his car while on a college road trip.  He described the creature as a "jawa" for years due to its coloration and pointed head.

Besides his bigfoot interest, his love for the Greenbay Packers was legendary, and he ran a website devoted to this love.  Whenever we hang out, good conversation, good beer, and good times could be counted on.

Scott, you will be sorely missed.
