A Nebraska First

It has been confirmed by the Himalayan DataBase that Robert Kay is the first Nebraskan to reach the summit of Mount Everest. (In fact he may be the only Nebraskan to attempt it!)  The American Alpine Club's Richard Salisbury is the creator of the database. The 2016 summits of Everest will not be posed for a while but previous years' data is available. The data base is sourced through the Expedition Archives of Elizabeth Hawley. (dates covered 1905 - 2003)  You can learn more about the history of climbing the high peaks of the Himalaya by clicking this link
