Robert Tatum Diaries

On June 7, 1913, four climbers reached the south summit of Denali, known at the time as Mount McKinley, the highest peak in North America. It was the first successful ascent to the pinnacle. Robert G. Tatum was a member of the climbing party. The University of Tennessee's digital collection of Tatum's diaries document the climb as well as Tatum's life after the ascent. Also available is a photograph album with images taken during and after the famous climb.
