Title

Miss Peck and Mt. Husacaran

Description

A newspaper clipping from the New York Tribune - Jan 20, 1910 - containing a letter to the editor of the Tribune from Fanny Bullock Workman announcing that Annie Peck's estimate of the height of Mt. Huascaran was incorrect. Mrs. Bullock Workman states that Annie Peck's ascent was only 21,812 feet instead of 24,000 feet - meaning that she had not set a new record.
