Papers of Thomas Hornbein, M.D., professor emeritus at the University of Washington and a prominent anesthesiologist, physiologist, and mountaineer. The collection documents his scientific and exploratory achievements in the areas of high-altitude breathing and the regulation of brain/acid balance, notably including materials from 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.

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.

Papers of Thomas Hornbein, M.D., professor emeritus at the University of Washington and a prominent anesthesiologist, physiologist, and mountaineer. The collection documents his scientific and exploratory achievements in the areas of high-altitude breathing and the regulation of brain/acid balance, notably including materials from 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. Hornbein authored Everest: The West Ridge (1965) and co-edited, with Robert Schoene, High Altitude: An Exploration of Human Adaptation, and research files, manuscripts and drafts relating to these publications are in the collection. It also includes correspondence, papers on other significant mountain expeditions in China and Pakistan, documentation of Hornbein's professional affiliations, additional grant and research projects, and biographical materials. A modest portion of the collection relates to administrative records during his chairmanship of the University of Washington, Department of Anesthesia and his commitment to resident education.

AMERICAN MOUNT EVEREST EXPEDITION (1963)

Scope and Content of Series

Series 3) AMERICAN MOUNT EVEREST EXPEDITION (1963): The bulk of this series is correspondence related to the organization of the AMEE and post-expedition experiences. The expedition, supported in part by the National Geographic Society and headed by Swiss-American mountaineer Norman Dyhrenfurth, placed the first Americans atop Mount Everest and pioneered the West Ridge ascent accomplished by Hornbein and William Unsoeld. Arranged in five subseries: A) Pre-expedition Correspondence, B) Post-expedition Correspondence, C) Correspondence between Thomas and Gene Hornbein, D) Equipment and Medical Materials, and E) Miscellaneous.

A) Pre-expedition Correspondence: Between 1961 and 1963, Hornbein was in correspondence with the Maytag Company regarding the manufacture of a newly designed high altitude oxygen mask. The Pre-expedition Correspondence represents the interaction between expedition team members including Norman Dyhrenfurth and Willi Unsoeld regarding 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.

B) 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 his forthcoming book. 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.

C) Correspondence between Thomas and Gene Hornbein: Copies of handwritten letters written from February to June, 1963, during the Everest Expedition.

D) Equipment and Medical Materials: Various equipment and supply lists necessary to the expedition. Also included is research data on the Maytag oxygen mask. The subseries is arranged alphabetically.

E) Miscellaneous: Includes expedition newsletters and bulletins, photographs of Willi Unsoeld and Thomas Hornbein, and organizational materials concerning both the 20th and 25th anniversary celebrations of the 1963 Everest Expedition.

OTHER EXPEDITIONS

Scope and Content of Series

Series 4) OTHER EXPEDITIONS: In addition to the expedition to Everest, Thomas Hornbein continued his mountaineering with expeditions to China and Pakistan. The American Meili Snow Mountain Expedition (1989) was a return friendship mission to China coordinated with the China International Sports Travel. Hornbein had previously participated in an expedition with the American-Muztagh team along with veteran climber Nicholas Clinch to China in 1985 with a similar purpose of facilitating cooperation in mountaineering. The series also includes materials related to the two expeditions to Pakistan, Masherbrum peak in 1960, and Paijua in 1974. The trip in 1960 caused Hornbein to redesign the oxygen masks used for high altitude breathing. The papers, arranged alphabetically by title of expedition, include correspondence, diary accounts, equipment and medical lists, notes, and photographs.
