Alfred "Fred" Beck (July 22, 1888 - June 1, 1972) was an American miner who reported, along with four other members of his party, being attacked by crypto-hominids in July 1924 at a gorge on the southeast shoulder of Mount St. Helens (now called Ape Canyon after the incident), some eight miles from Spirit Lake, an event he later detailed in a 1967 booklet entitled I Fought the Apemen of Mt. St. Helens.
