A.A.C., Sierra Nevada Section

A.A.C., Sierra Nevada Section. Only one meeting was held by the Sierra Nevada section during 1959. On March 20 an enjoyable evening was spent at the Nilsson home, where Richard Houston presented a lively account of an expedition to the Bella Coola range of British Columbia. New officers for 1959-1960 elected at this time were Dr. Howard Parker, chairman; Lee Stopple, vice-chairman, and Leigh Ortenburger, secretary-treasurer. The membership now stands at 70, the highest to date. Various section members made significant climbs in Africa and Peru, on Mount Logan and Mount Robson in Canada, and of Mount Slaggard and Mount McCauley in the Yukon, the two highest unclimbed peaks in North America.
