Subject: Recovering film from Mount Everest

Recovering film from Mount Everest

From: Gary L. Moore <gcmoore>
Date: Wednesday, November 4, 1998
Early in 1999, researchers will undertake The Mallory and Irvine
Research Expedition, Expedition 8000--Everest 1999--Tibet to try to
locate and recover evidence pertaining to the disappearance of
George Mallory and Andrew Irvine on Mt. Everest in 1924.  Hopefully
we will be able to locate and recover a camera which might contain
film showing their summit success or failure.  Should we recover the
camera, and it is structurally intact, is it possible the film might
still be developed? It would have remained frozen through the years.
How should the film be handled? Thank you,

Gary L. Moore, Expedition Archaeologist
