Cryptozoology Organizations [cached]

Vice President: Dr. Roy P. Mackal

The Meaning of Cryptozoology | International Cryptozoology Museum [cached]

ISC's late Vice President Dr. Roy Mackal has written: "…the term 'cryptozoology' seems to me particularly appropriate, coming as it does from the Greek work *kryptos*, meaning 'hidden.' 'unknown,' 'secret,' 'enigmatic,' 'mysterious'; hence literally the study of hidden animals" (Searching for Hidden Animals, Garden City, NY: Doubleday, 1980, p. xi).

The UnMuseum - Mok'ele-mbembe [cached]

However, in 1980, Dr. Roy Mackal, a biologist at the University of Chicago and James Powell, a herpetologist, decided to go and take another look at the source of the mok'ele-mbembe tales.

Mackal and Powell suspected that the creature was a small relative of the Apatosaurus, but gathered no proof.

Richard Fitter: Obituary [cached]

Roy Mackal, after 1966, was LNI's scientific advisor, and after 1967, Dick Raynor was a frequent expedition member.

Mackal's involved American scientific interests and got financial support of the Adventurers' Club of Chicago, and Field Enterprises, publishers of World Book Encyclopedia.
In July, 1987, a formal scientific symposium on The Loch Ness Monster was hosted by the Society for the History of Natural History and the International Society of Cryptozoology (ISC) and held at the Royal Museum of Scotland. Richard Fitter contributed a paper, as did Roy Mackal, Henry Bauer, Paul LeBlond, Adrian Shine, Robert Rines and Tim Dinsdale.
