The Alps 90 Years Ago. In the President’s Address (A. A. J. iv, 474, line 12), one should read “Zermatt” for “the Alps.” Needless to say, before this time, other major peaks such as Mont Blanc (1786), Gross Glockner (1800), Order (1804), Jungfrau (1811) had been ascended. Those interested in this phase of Alpine history will find full details in Coolidge’s The Alps in Nature and History.
