Appalachian Mountain Club. During 1959 members of this club were active in almost all mountain ranges of the world. Club trips were made to Africa, the Canadian Rockies, and many more regions closer to home.
Various of the club sections have instituted their own programs for white water and rock climbing. Some new construction has been undertaken in the A.M.C. huts under the management of George Hamilton.
The Mountain Leadership Committee has been more conspicuously active than most of the other club functions. It has been pioneering various aspects of mountain safety education with training films, posters, pamphlets, leadership clinics, and a certification program for five gradations of leadership ability.
