New Online: Norman H. Read Mount Logan papers

In 1925, Norman H. Read (1891-1992) was part of the first expedition to climb Mount Logan, the highest mountain in Canada and the second-highest peak in North America. Read returned to make a second ascent of the mountain in 1950, at the age of sixty.

The Norman H. Read Mount Logan Papers consist of Read’s accounts of his ascents of Mount Logan in 1925 and 1950, as well as expedition plans, news clippings, publications, and more than one thousand photographs, most of them taken during the expeditions.
