Climber's spirit lives on at OSU
Fifty years ago this spring, the first American mountaineers to scale the world's tallest mountain accomplished that feat in a manner that still has the climbing world in awe today. The ascent of Mt. Everest by Willi Unsoeld and Tom Hornbein is considered one of the greatest climbing achievements in history. A graduate of SU, Unsoeld later served on the faculty of the Department of Religion and Philosophy before taking a leave of absence to join the Peace Corps and embarking upon his historic trek.
