Edmund Hillary conquers Mt. Everest...



Item # 639417

June 2, 1953

THE RUSSELL DAILY NEWS, Kansas, June 2, 1953 

* Sir Edmund Percival Hillary
* Mount Everest summit reached (1st time)


This issue documents one of the significant events of man conquering the limits of his world with the successful capture of Mt. Everest. Near the bottom of the front page is a three column heading announcing: "British Climb Atop Mt. Everest" (see) It was coincidental that this event happened the same week as the coronation of Queen Elizabeth, hence the reports from London also on the front page.
Complete in 4 pages, a few small binding holes along spine, nice.
