In 2009, I mentioned the death of early Bigfooter Ed Patrick.
November 1959, first day of the Pacific Northwest Expedition, Bluff Creek, California: Pictured are the original personnel, from left to right, Ed Patrick, Tom Slick (co-sponsor), René Dahinden, Kirk Johnson, Jr. (co-sponsor), Bob Titmus, and Tom’s secretary, Gerri Walsh. Behind the camera, and also at the campsite as a member, was John Green.
One of the founding fathers in Bigfootry, Ed Patrick formally of Redding and Hoopa, California, passed away on June 19, 2009.

Now comes word of an early record of these times being re-discovered.
Steven Streufert of the Bigfoot Books blog passes along the news that a “new, unpublished, local Willow Creek account of Ed Patrick has surfaced.” You can read it here.
