Trevor Braham

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Trevor Braham (born 22 April 1922), is a prominent figure in Himalayan exploration and mountaineering.

Braham joined the Himalayan Club in 1946, the Swiss Alpine Club in 1948, and the Alpine Club in 1951. He was Vice President of the Himalayan Club (1958–1965), Honorary Editor of the Himalayan Journal (1957–59), and was elected as an Honorary member of the Himalayan Club in 1980.

Trevor Braham's halcyon years (1950–1972), corresponded with the Himalayan Golden Age when an international frenzy developed to achieve the first ascent of the world's highest peaks. He organized and took part in 15 Himalayan expeditions, including in 1954 a reconnaissance of the South West face of Kangchenjunga, the world's third highest mountain, which was first climbed by a British expedition in 1955.
 
His numerous travels and explorations in little-known and isolated Himalayan regions included three visits to mountains in the tribal areas on Pakistan's northwest frontier, which were made in an environment and under conditions very different from those today, and about which he has written numerous articles to the Alpine and Himalayan Journals. At the request of the editor of the Swiss Alpine Journal, he wrote an annual Chronicle of Himalayan activities during the years 1977-1985.

Trevor Braham has authored three books: Himalayan Odyssey (Allen & Unwin, 1974), When The Alps Cast Their Spell (Neil Wilson, 2004), and Himalayan Playground (Neil Wilson, 2008). His second book won the Boardman-Tasker prize, awarded annually to the leading mountain book of the year. Its publication was followed by interviews with the press in Britain and Switzerland.

He has lectured to the Alpine and Himalayan Clubs, and to schools and societies in England, India and Switzerland. At celebrations held in India by the Himalayan Club in 2008, to mark the founding of the Club in India by the British in 1928, Trevor Braham was invited to be the principal speaker on the history of the Club.
