A team of mountaineers is to search Everest to try to settle once and for all a claim that the world’s highest peak was conquered 29 years before Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay’s 1953 triumph. British climbers George Mallory and Andrew Irvlne disappeared about 700 feet from the top of Everest in 1924, inspiring one of mountaineering’s most enduring legends. Their bodies have never been discovered — and neither has the Vest-Pocket Kodak camera Mallory was carrying in his knapsack. According to Kodak, the cold conditions may well have preserved the film. If the film featured a photograph of either of the two men at the mountain peak, the discovery would turn their story of glorious failure into one of sweet success.

Thirty years after his assassination, Martin Luther King is still regarded as a black leader of a movement for black equality. That assessment, while accurate, is far too restrictive.
