Dr. Donald Grieve was Professor of Biomechanics at the Royal Free Hospital School of Medicine in London and then at University College London. He was a member of the International Society of Biomechanics for many years and served on its committee, including as chair of the honours committee.
His research in occupational biomechanics and ergonomics concentrated on seeking to apply the laws of physics to the human body as a whole when exerting force.
On Friday, September 18, 2009, Dr. Grieve passed away at the age of 78. He had had a stroke in 2006, from which he never fully recovered.
Throughout his life, he was respected among his colleagues and contemporaries as a leader in the study of biomechanics.
Sasquatch researcher René Dahinden traveled to Europe in December of 1971. He met with Dr. Grieve and showed him the Patterson/Gimlin film. Grieve studied the film at length and made some very interesting and intriguing conclusions.
Thankfully, Dahinden had the foresight to record his meeting with Grieve. For the first time ever, the audio from this meeting is available to the public.
It must be stated that without John Green’s tenacity in archiving materials such as the Grieve interview, some of these old audio clips would be lost forever. So, gratitude is extended to John Green (1927–2016) for his life-long and tireless efforts. "
