BWAMM Speaker Series: March 4th, 7pm, The Epic of Everest and Jake Norton

From Bentley Beetham Collection

On June 8, 1924, George Mallory & Andrew Irvine disappeared into the mists high on Everest, spawning one of the greatest mysteries of Everest history.  Cinematographer John Noel filmed much of the expedition, and compiled it into the Epic of Everest. Join us at the Museum on Wednesday, March 4th at 7pm, to see this rare and famous film, with an introduction by museum director Jake Norton, who helped discover the remains of Mallory in 1999.
