National Geographic's Collectors Corner

Collaborative site for collectors, dealers, & anyone interested in our history.

Good evening 'Corner,

Rummaging through clippings and saved articles this past month I came across this item featured in the 2013 year-end wrap-up from 'The Week' magazine.

It is dated 31-Dec-2013, and titled "Great Reads: The Chaos on Everest". I scanned the 2-page article into a PDF document:

[attached here]  "The Chaos on Mt. Everest"

Mark Collins Jenkins was formerly the in-house historian for the National Geographic Society, and he authored, edited or collaborated on numerous of NG's book publications. Some notables include the '125th Anniversary' book (2012/13), along with "The Covers / NGM" (2014), and "High Adventure: the Story of N.G.S." (2003, 2008; 2013) ; he edited the 2007 anthology "Worlds To Explore" and he assisted with (Emeritus Editor-President-Chairman) Gilbert M. Grosvenor's recent book, "Man of the World" (Sept. 2022).

I just wanted to share!
