Box 1 of 1

The following is not a complete list of the box contents. The box contains hundreds of loose-leaf, mimeographed pages, not very well organized.

This collection contains a lot of information on the thinking that went into the Mountaineers climbing course after 1936 (i.e. after Wolf Bauer left the course).
