Hawley's The Himalayan Database became the unofficial record for climbs in the Nepalese Himalaya

Hawley's The Himalayan Database became the unofficial record for climbs in the Nepalese Himalaya. She was also the honorary consul in Nepal for New Zealand. Hawley was born in Chicago, Illinois in 1923. She was educated at the University of Michigan and graduated with an honours degree in English in 1946

It is based on the archive of the American journalist Elizabeth Hawley, who died in January at the age of 94. Miss Hawley moved to Kathmandu in 1959 as a reporter for Reuters and remained there for the rest of her life (I wouldn’t normally use the title ‘Miss’, but I understand that’s what she preferred). Another one, American IT consultant Richard Salisbury, has been managing her records since they went digital, and continues to run the database.

The Himalayan Database team was very saddened to learn about the death of Peruvian mountaineer, Richard Hidalgo, on Makalu in the morning of 8 May 2019.

The Himalayan Database. The Himalayan Database team was very saddened to learn about the death of Peruvian mountaineer, Richard Hidalgo, on Makalu in the morning of 8 May 2019. In Nepal, Richard summited Cho Oyu, Manaslu and Annapurna 1 - all in style and without supplemental oxygen.

it does not include the Pakistan Himalaya peaks such as K2 and Nanga Parbat et., maintained by Richard Salisbury who digitised the records. The Himalayan Database (HDB), was developed and maintained by Elizabeth Hawley, who remained involved up to her death in 2018.

The database was also previously maintained by Elizabeth Hawley before her death in 2018. It fills in for the absence of officially maintained records References.

It fills in for the absence of officially maintained records

·Searchable database informs decisions for expedition planning ·Records provide a glimpse into the successes and failures of expeditions ·Searchable by peak, climber, expedition, nationality, conditions, seasons, causes of death and many other details.

Expeditions are influenced by an abundance of reference materials that detail the histories of past successes, but lack quantifiable data to vital questions. What route has the highest success rate? What route has the highest death rate?

Since the first American Everest expedition in 1963, Elizabeth Hawley has kept meticulous track of these details. The database contains information on the mountaineering peaks of Nepal, on the expeditions that have climbed in Nepal or on its border peaks, and on all the members of those expeditions. A table includes literature references to the expeditions.

The program is a Microsoft Visual Foxpro application and is compatible for both PC (Windows 9x, ME, NT, 2000, XP) and Mac.

This is not a book per se ! It is a database .... And as such it is extremely useful for anyone researching the climbing history in the Himalayas ... Bravo !!!

I bought this database thinking I could research easily Elizabeth Hawley's compilation of work for the last numerous decades. This database, as it is organized, is nearly unusable for Mac users without third party software, and even with that software, it's not easy.
I think there are numerous other ways this important collection could have been organized and the PC format just isn't that accessible for Mac users.
