An eccentric professor, S. Gordon (Grover) Krantz

Grover Krantz was an anthropologist at Washington State University. He wrote about many things, but was most famous for the Pacific Northwest's famous giants, the Sasquatch otherwise known as Bigfoot.

Krantz believed Bigfoot was a tribe of Gigantopithecus survivors. My own identification of Bigfoot is different, but anyway, here is a very interesting Washington Post article of where Grover ended up after death (in the Smithsonian, on display).

It is a story far more happy than sad, but it does bring tears to the eyes.
