Charles Earl "Charlie/Bigfoot" Lewis was a lawyer who served as the second Governor of Jefferson. He was also the state's first Sasquatch governor. 

Lewis was educated in San Francisco. He resolved to become an attorney when he realized that little people were still coming to traditional Sasquatch lands in droves in the years before Jefferson was formed. He also realized that the bureaucrats in Sacramento and Salem were unlikely to worry much about such issues.[1] He made a living as a bouncer at the Cliff House while he completed his studies.[2]

His term as governor overlapped with the Presidency of Calvin Coolidge. Lewis was able to take advantage of the economic prosperity of the Coolidge years, and built the Governor's Mansion in Yreka to suit the needs of Sasquatches. This included 13-foot high ceilings and 10-foot high doors. Lewis operated on the theory that too big for little people was easier to deal with than too small for Sasquatches. Bill Williamson, a sasquatch who served as governor in the late 1970s, appreciated Lewis's decision.[3]

Lewis was the namesake of Charles Earl Lewis International Airport.[4]
