Krantz, Grover S.

A retired anthropologist at Washington State University in Pullman, Grover S. Krantz is the author of many academic works on physical anthropology. One of a very small number of academics actively involved in Bigfoot/Sasquatch research, he is one of the most quoted experts on the status of the controversy. He has written several papers of exemplary rigor (published in Northwest Anthropological Research Notes) and two books, The Sasquatch and Other Unknown Hominoids (1984, with Vladimir Markotic) and Big Footprints (1992), revised as Bigfoot Sasquatch Evidence (1999). Krantz is the foremost proponent of the theory that the survival of the giant ape Gigantopithecus, recently thought to be extinct, is the source of Bigfoot reports.
