Administrative Information

Acquisition Information

In 1970 the Board of Directors of the Sierra Club voted to place the club's historical records in The Bancroft Library. Included in the first donation were summit registers and committee records of historical value. Registers continue to be added to the collection by club members and other individuals as they are filled and replaced.

Accruals

Future additions are expected.

Processing Information

Processed by Lauren Lassleben, Project Archivist, and Xiuzhi Zhou, Project Assistant in 1992; Additions by Charis Baz Takaro in 1998, and by Alison E. Bridger from 2004-2007. Additions are processed by Bancroft Library staff as they are accessioned.

Organizational History

The Mountaineering Committee was formed in 1932 with Francis P. Farquhar as its chairman. Initially it planned to compile and index a list of early ascents and summit records of the Sierra Nevada. Later the Committee was also engaged in documenting mountain register records and adding historical notations to climbing routes.
For more information on missing registers see:
Kirby, Mark. "Paper Chase: Who's Stealing the Sierra's Historic Summit Registers?" National Geographic Adventure Magazine Feb. 2005.

Scope and Content of Collection

The Sierra Club Mountain Registers and Records contains the Sierra Club Mountaineering Committee records, artifacts including register containers, and mountain registers mainly from California summits of the Sierra Nevada.
This collection contains three series: Mountaineering Committee Records, Artifacts, and Mountain Registers, covering a period of over one century. The committee records reflect the scope of its activity, the policy it set for record keeping, and vivid descriptions of the summits, the trails, and ascents to the peaks.
The second series contains a variety of artifacts, principally a sampling of register containers and related items retained for exhibit purposes.
The third series contains mountain registers, mainly from California summits of the Sierra Nevada, with a few from other states and foreign countries. Many registers have weathered snow and rain and are extremely fragile.
Additional Notes on Collection:
Because Sierra Club individuals and issues are often represented in more than one of the Sierra Club collections (see related collections), researchers are further advised to consult the related inventories.

Content/Description

Among the mountain register artifacts are a number of register containers made of a variety of materials: brass, iron, tin, wood and glass. Included are brass and iron cylinders, with Sierra Club engravings either on the cap or on the tube, and a wooden register box with the Sierra Club logo, installed on Banner Peak around 1963. Other register paraphernalia include less traditional containers, nails, register stamps, a copper label, and a bolt from the ruins of the Summit Monument on Mount Shasta.

Series 3 Mountain Registers 1875-2008

Physical Description: Carton 2, folders 34-35; Cartons 3-19, and 21-26, Oversize boxes 1-2

Arrangement

Arranged alphabetically by name of summit or mountain, and then chronologically.

Content/Description

Contains register volumes and registers consisting of loose sheets. Unless otherwise indicated the location is California. Registers of multiple locations, and unknown locations entered at end of list. Some registers overlap in dates and popular site may have more than one register in a year. Since these registers are exposed to the elements some are extremely fragile. If you cannot find the register you are looking for it may be included in the unidentified registers found at the end of this series. Otherwise the register may still be on the mountain, or unfortunately it may be missing. The Bancroft receives new registers all the time and tries to update the finding aid annually.
