1936, Gila Cliff Dwellings, New Mexico: Man Claims Communication with Bigfoot
Dr. Gordon Bannon began a series of audio experiments in the Cliff Dwellings on this day. Dr. Bannon claims that he heard and recorded 17 different Bigfoot cries from within the cave. Without the use of any audio recording equipment, Dr. Bannon parroted the noises he claimed to have heard.
He published several papers theorizing that a tribe of Bigfoot still lived within the Cliffs. He held weekend seminars that became infamous because Dr. Bannon would hoot and coo and wave his arms about while demonstrating the various types of Bigfoot calls. Eventually, Dr. Bannon became something of a laughing stock and could not walk down the public street without children mocking him and housewives casting aspersions.
Dr. Bannon never recanted and died while working on an oral history of the Cliff Tribes.
