Base Camp Book, 1952
This book documents the 1952 Sierra Club Base Camp outings, held in Colby Meadows located on the western slope of the Sierra Nevada Range. This was the largest base camp outing to date, surpassing the previous year, with 367 attendees including 72 children. The book includes more black and white photographs than any other Base Camp book to date as well, with over 50 images illustrating the surrounding environment. Like those before it, this book documents the activities and experiences of participants, including poems, plays, drawings, songs, and diary excerpts. Additionally, the book contains scientific notes, such as birds inventories, glacier reports, and flora and fauna notes (with over 900 specimens collected for the California Academy of Sciences). There is also a fold out map included in the inside cover, illustrating the location of the camp.
