Gerald DeGroot is the co-founder of the DHARMA Initiative, with his wife Karen DeGroot.

Contents

Before the DHARMA Initiative

When Gerald was eight, Alvar Hanso stayed with his family while attending the University of Michigan (located in Ann Arbor, MI) as a foreign exchange student. Alvar bonded with the DeGroots, particularly Gerald, and stayed in contact with them over the years. Later, Gerald, and his future wife Karen, attended the University of Michigan as well, and were both doctoral candidates there. (Pearl Orientation video) When Gerald was a graduate student, he contacted Alvar, asking for funding for his new project, the DHARMA Initiative. (Mysteries of the Universe)

Founding the DHARMA Initiative

In 1970, Gerald and Karen DeGroot founded the DHARMA Initiative. It was, and may still be, financially backed by Danish industrialist and munitions magnate Alvar Hanso and his Hanso Foundation. The alleged purpose of the Initiative was to create "a large-scale communal research compound where scientists and free-thinkers from around the globe could pursue research in meteorology, psychology, parapsychology, zoology, and electromagnetism."

After the DHARMA Initiative

According to Thomas Mittlewerk, the DHARMA Initiative "failed". The whereabouts of this couple are unknown today but many theories have surfaced.

Gerald is a man wandering near the banks of the River Dougne, south of the massive chain of rapids known as Baxtorian Falls. Gerald appears to be a fisherman looking to harvest the native trout and salmon that make their home in the nearby stretch of water.

Gerald can be found very close to where a player will wash up if they attempt to traverse Baxtorian Falls' rapids without a rope, a fact he comments on in an issue of Postbag from the Hedge. If spoken to, Gerald will discuss some of the area's tourist attractions. He also makes a brief mention of the legendary treasure said to have been left in the falls by the elven king Baxtorian some 200 years ago, in the late days of the Fourth Age. He says that, although many adventurers come searching for it, none have found any trace of Baxtorian's legendary tomb.

Gerald may be some help to players working on Waterfall Quest, as some his historical knowledge relates to the quest.
