A Living Dinosaur? In Search of Mokele-Mbembe

Dr. Roy P. Mackal is a distinguished biochemist, engineer, and biologist who has spent most of his academic life at the University of Chicago where he obtained his B.A. in 1949 and a Ph.D. in 1953.

His biochemical research, much of it DNA-related, has brought him international recognition. As an engineer he has developed numerous technical innovations, including the design and construction of automatic parachute and recovery systems for sounding rockets and a hydrogen-generation device for weather ballons.

As a biologist he has become well known for his sometime controversial involvements with cryptozoology, the recently established science which investigates problems associated with 'hidden' or little-known creatures. A vice-president of the International Society of Cryptozoology, he was Scientific Director of the Loch Ness Phenomena Investigation Bureau between 1965 and 1975. This function and the titles of his previous books, The Monsters of Loch Ness and Searching for Hidden Animals, sufficiently indicate his dedication to that science to which he brings a healthy and enthusiastic optimism as well as an analytical and practical intellect.
