Hall, Henry S., Jr. (1895 – 1987) – AAC Councilor (1923-33, 47-49, 53-73), Secretary (1933-46), President (1950-52), Honorary Member (1962), and first Honorary President (1974-87). He was also a founder of the Harvard Mountaineering Club. He climbed in the Alps, New Zealand, Mexico, the Caucasus, Japan, Columbia, Alaska, British Columbia, and many parts of the US. He made a number of first ascents, and climbed such peaks as Waddington and Robson, and was a member of the team which made the first ascent of Logan. His significant financial support helped not only the Club but many expeditions maintain solvency. Hall was one of the most important members in the AAC’s history and the Club’s Library is named in his memory.
