May 2nd 1933 The LOCH NESS MONSTER Becomes A Household Name

Written By: Ken Hulsey

Though the legend of the Loch Ness Monster dates back to the middle ages the creature was really not known outside of Scotland until 1933 when a report of a sighting made international headlines.

On this date in 1933 the Inverness Courier ran a story about George Spicer and his wife who had been taking a leisurely drive around the Loch when the spotted something strange on the water. According to Spicer (it was) "the nearest approach to a dragon or pre-historic animal that I have ever seen in my life." The IC story was the first time that Nessie had been called a "monster" hence the title "Loch Ness Monster" was born.

The wire services quickly picked up on the story and soon the Loch Ness Monster was making headlines around the globe. The popularity of the piece prompted others who had reportedly seen the creature to come forward and before long the Inverness Courier was overwhelmed with stories and alleged sightings.

Within a year the first photo of Nessie taken by Hugh Gray (on December 6th 1933) and the famous Surgeon's Photograph (taken the following April), which has been now proven fake, were published spawning even more interest in the legendary beast.

"Bigfoot! He's real! I knew it! The Loch Ness Monster's book was right!"
