A.A.C., Sierra Nevada Section. The year 1967 saw our section’s membership grow from 68 to 84, probably the largest annual gain in recent years. The section served as host to the annual meeting and dinner in Berkeley. Francis P. Farquhar, who for years has been a cornerstone of the Sierra Nevada Section, was awarded honorary membership at the annual meeting. The dinner, the second ever held in the West, was a social and financial success, with the third highest attendance (113 members and 191 guests) in club history. Beside the annual meeting and dinner, we met as a section three times during the year, enjoying a variety of programs on the Cordillera Huayhuash, the Eiger North Wall in winter, climbing in Poland, McKinley in the spring, Lucania and Steele, and Glen

Denny’s superb film, “Nyala.” Section members climbed in Alaska, Yosemite, the Tetons, Africa, the Canadian Rockies, and the Andes. Leo LeBon led a successful outing to Nepal in the fall.
