EDMUND HILLARY
Signed 3x5 candid photo, shown outdoors in sweater
Photograph signed: "Ed Hillary". Color, 3x5. On May 29th, 1953, Edmund P. Hillary (1919-2008) stood poised atop the highest mountain peak on earth (29,028 feet). Together, Hillary and a Sherpa mountaineer, Tenzing Norgay, as members of a British expedition, were the first men ever to surmount the forbidding Mount Everest of the Himalayas. As a result of his achievement, Hillary, the beekeeper from Auckland, New Zealand, was knighted Sir Edmund. In 1955, he published High Adventure, which detailed his climb. Hillary then guided a New Zealand group, in support of the British Commonwealth Trans-Arctic Expedition, to establish a base and lay out depots towards the South Pole, a grueling three-year ordeal ending successfully in March of 1958. In 1977, he led the first jet-boat expedition up the Ganges, eventually climbing to its source in the Himalayas. Hillary, since his Everest climb, has built hospitals, schools and raised funds for the Sherpa people. He was President of the Volunteer Service Abroad, a patron of the Race Relations Council and has been active in conservation campaigns. His autobiography, Nothing Venture, Nothing Win, was published in 1975. Edges lightly soiled on verso. Fine condition.
