Abstract

Papers of Thomas Hornbein, M.D., professor emeritus at the University of Washington in Seattle Departments of Anesthesiology, and Physiology, and Biophysics and veteran mountaineer climber, explorer, and educator. The papers document the American Mount Everest Expedition where Hornbein and his climbing partner Willi Unsoeld reached the summit of Mount Everest via the West Ridge in 1963, the first to accomplish this climb. In addition, the collection includes correspondence to and from the medical community, published articles, lecture materials, subject files, and materials related to Hornbein's professional affilation memberships. The papers also focus on Hornbein as author of EVEREST: THE WEST RIDGE and as editor, with Robert Schoene, of HIGH ALTITUDE: AN EXPLORATION OF HUMAN ADAPTATION, with many of the materials representing drafts and page proofs. A large portion of the collection documents Hornbein's chairmanship and faculty career at the University of Washington and materials related to medical expeditions to China and Pakistan. Also included are biographical documents such as photographs, newspaper clippings, and audio and video materials.

Biography

Born in 1930 in St. Louis, Missouri, Thomas Hornbein developed an early interest in geology and mountain exploration. He began his academic career as a geology major at the University of Colorado from (1948-1952) where he began teaching mountain rescue and first aid courses, prompting an interest in medicine. He returned to his hometown in St. Louis, Missouri, to attend medical school at Washington University School of Medicine (1952-1956) and then residency training and postdoctoral research (1957-1961). He continued his interest in high altitude and physiology of breathing as a NIH-supported research fellow with Dr. Albert Roos.

After holding an instructorship at Washington University, St. Louis, he served his military duty as a Lieutenant Commander in the United States Navy stationed in San Diego Naval Hospital (1961-1963), during which time he requested an honorable discharge to be a member of the American Mount Everest Expedition in 1963. With veteran mountaineer Willi Unsoeld, Hornbein reached the summit of Mount Everest on May 22, 1963, to become the first climbers to ascend the mountain via the West Ridge and to traverse down the other side. The team was presented with the National Geographic Society Hubbard Medal by President John F. Kennedy in July 1963.

Upon returning from the Everest expedition, Hornbein assumed a position as Assistant Professor, joint appointment in the Department of Anesthesiology and the Department of Physiology and Biophysics at the University of Washington in Seattle (1963). His tenure at UW continued as Associate Professor (1967), Professor (1970-2002), Chairman of the Anesthesiology Department, School of Medicine (1978-93), and Professor Emeritus (2002-present).

Dr. Hornbein's research has focused on the stimuli which prompt animals to breathe, particularly carotid body and central chemosensors and the regulation of brain acid base balance. His studies have yielded over 100 journal articles and book chapters. He also maintained editorial responsibilites for HIGH ALTITUDE: AN EXPLORATION OF HUMAN ADAPTATION, co-edited with Robert Schoene, M.D., which included more than twenty contributing authors. His editorial responsibilities have extended to the American Physiological Society, as an editor and book reviewer and to scholarly journals such as ANESTHESIOLOGY and the JOURNAL OF APPLIED PHYSIOLOGY.

Dr. Hornbein's interest in expedition and mountaineering has led him to climbs in Karakoram in Pakistan and China. In addition to his international expeditions, he has climbed Mount Rainier in Washington and Long's Peak in Colorado. The climb of Masherbrum peak (1960) provided a unique experience for Hornbein, prompting him, with the support of the Maytag Company, to devise a single-valved oxygen mask more effective for high altitude climbing. The concept mask was subsequently created for the Everest climb in 1963.

Dr. Hornbein currently lives in Estes Park, Colorado and continues his interest in mountaineering and high altitude adaptation medicine.

The Pre-expedition Correspondence represents the interaction between expedition team members including Norman Dyhrenfurth and Willi Unsoeld regarding the pre-expedition testing of the mask and general organizational issues. Also included are the letter exchange for the original refusal for Hornbein's release from the United States Navy and then subsequent honorable discharge on the recommendation of Robert Sargeant Shriver (brother-in-law to John F. Kennedy).

B) The Post-Expedition Correspondence dating from 1964-1981 documents Hornbein's reflections on the Everest expedition, acceptance letters for lectures on the expedition, and publishing offers for the book EVEREST: THE WEST RIDGE. In 1963, he accepted an assistant professorship, Joint Appointment in the Department of Anesthesiology and the Department of Physiology and Biophysics at the University of Washington School of Medicine, resulting in correspondence with John Bonica, M.D., and other UW medical faculty.
