Mountaineer Raymond Jacquot will give a free presentation about the history of American mountaineering Wednesday, Oct. 7, at 7 p.m. in Room 214 of the University of Wyoming Classroom Building.

Jacquot's presentation,"1931: A Banner Year for American and Wyoming Mountaineering," will explore how the formation of Grand Teton National Park aided the development of climbing throughout the United States and how a small group of climbers in 1931 impacted the future of American mountaineering.

"When I started climbing, and for three decades prior to that, there was almost no communication between the climbing communities in the country," says Jacquot, a retired UW professor an avid climber of the Tetons and other mountains in the western United States. "One of the few places that these very separate influences came together was in the Tetons. This began in about 1929 with the creation of Grand Teton National Park."
