Mick Burke Collection

The latest collection to be added to those already held by MHT is that of Mick Burke, noted alpinist and film cameraman who sadly disappeared in a storm on Mount Everest in 1975.  The collection comprises slides (and an index to same), photographs, route notes and a diary of the Annapurna South Face Expedition from 1970 which has brief, but telling entries. Thanks to John and Beth Bevan and Sara Burke for this generous donation.
