Giant and Colossal Squid Strandings and Recovery

Status
This article is in the series Concerning Giants
Wikipedia resource for historical strandings

When TONMO.com set out to create a comprehensive list of all giant and colossal squid specimen discoveries throughout history, TONMO.com member Archi sent me the following email:
I feel that this would be a good source of information for the new Squidbase, I only accidentally came across them:
If you scroll down, there are almost complete lists, some apparently from as early as 1545 for Architeuthis and 1925 for Mesonychoteuthis Hamiltoni
I hope this information is credible!

Thank you Archi! I've put this article up to allow TONMO.com visitors know that to us, these Wiki pages are the definitive list of giant and colossal squid observed throughout history. I hope to work with the authors of this page to provide addition detail for individual accounts (we've been cited a few times as it is).

2019 update: Wikipedia now breaks...
