Articles in this magazine are as follows:
 
    • The Conquest of Mount Logan: North America’s Second Highest Peak Yields to the Intrepid Attack of Canadian Climbers, with 40 Illustrations

      From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

      Elevation 5,959 m (19,551 ft)
      Location Yukon, Canada
      Range Saint Elias Mountains

      Mount Logan is Canada's highest mountain and the second-highest peak in North America, after Mount McKinley. The mountain was named after Sir William Edmond Logan, a Canadian geologist and founder of the Geological Survey of Canada (GSC). Mount Logan is located within Kluane National Park and Reserve in southwestern Yukon and is the source of the Hubbard and Logan Glaciers. Logan reportedly has the largest base circumference of any mountain on Earth.

      Due to active tectonic uplifting, Mount Logan is actually still rising in elevation. Before 1992, the exact height of Mount Logan was unknown and measurements ranged from 5,959 metres (19,551 ft) to 6,050 metres (19,849 ft). In May 1992, a GSC expedition climbed Mount Logan and fixed the current height of 5,959 metres (19,551 ft) using GPS.

      Temperatures are extremely cold on and near Mount Logan. On May 26, 1991 a record -77.5 °C (-108 °F) was observed, making it the coldest recorded temperature outside of Antarctica. It is not counted as the coldest temperature in North America since it was recorded at a very high altitude.

      First ascent

      In 1922, a geologist approached the Alpine Club of Canada with the suggestion that the club send a team to the mountain to reach the summit for the first time. An international team of Canadian, British and American climbers was assembled and initially they had planned their attempt in 1924 but funding and preparation delays postponed the trip until 1925. The international team of climbers began their journey in early May, crossing the mainland from the Pacific coast by train.
    • They then walked the remaining 200 kilometres (120 mi) to within 10 kilometres (6 mi) of the Logan Glacier where they established base camp. In the early evening of June 23, 1925, Albert H. MacCarthy, H.F. Lambart, A. Carpe, W.W. Foster, N. Read and A. Taylor stood on top for the first time. Not summiting, the party also included Henry S. Hall, later president of the American Alpine Club.

  • The Beauty of the Bavarian Alps, with 16 Autochromes Lumiere by Hans Hildenbrand
  • Through the Deserts and Jungles of Africa by Motor: Caterpillar Cars Make 15,000-Mile Trip from Algeria to Madagascar in Nine Months, with 96 Illustrations.
