Hillary Medal Presentation

December 11, 2016 (International Mountain Day) The 2017 Sir Edmund Hillary Mountain Legacy Medal was presented to Peruvian engineer César A. Portocarrero Rodríguez at the Hotel Tibet International in Boudhanath, Kathmandu.

October 15, 2016 Hillary Model, Hillary Medal, an 87-page article by Dr. Seth Sicroff, explores the originality of the development assistance model established by Sir Edmund Hillary, and the relation between that model and the selection of recipients of the Sir Edmund Hillary Mountain Legacy Medal.

The article appears in Jack D. Ives, Montologist: Festschrift for a Mountain Advocate, recently published by the Himalayan Association for the Advancement of Sciences (HimAAS). The volume is available on Amazon.com.
