Following your IG now. The t-shirts are okay but not inspired to buy yet. Would love to buy as soon as I see a design I can use. Love Ms Prim but wife not keen on me wearing that about.

I believe that is supposed to be the ever-enthusiastic Roper belaying the Wonderful Ms Pim. LOL

Steve, noted on the Wonderful Ms Pim, not Ms Prim! What are her origins/back story?

Charlie D and Scrubber, thank you!

Spider Savage, wonderful! We'll be printing more shirts that will hopefully fulfill the requirements of wife-approved and inspiring! Any illustrations that you'd really want to wear?

I'll leave you with a few more slides we were able to scan.

I found out at the the Oakdale Festival that Michael Anderson, Sheridan's younger brother, passed away recently. He was quite a good climber in his own right and very generous with me regarding access to Sheridan's work. Rest in Peace Brother.

Hi from across the pond. I'm the custodian of the Ken Wilson (of Mountain magazine fame during the 1970s and later as book publisher) Photographic archive. I also acquired from KW a few items of interest concerning Sheridan Anderson. The small cartoon is from an inscription in a book given to KW, presumably a SA self portrait with his wife/partner Mary. However perhaps of greater interest is that I have on our wall an original cartoon, namely "Golden Oldies, Tenzing and Hillary". There is a faint inscription to Ken (Wilson) and signed by SA.
I will photograph tomorrow during daylight and post later. I'm also lucky enough to have a copy of "The Climbing Cartoons of SA" by Kelsey & DuMais.

I'm with Fritz on this one: BIG thanks for that, Bookman!
Also to EccentricAl for the photograph of Sheridan in the Sierra Nevada and on Mount San Gorgonio, and from the previous page on the Royal Arches.

Eccentric Practices!
Hi... We're a couple goobers with a passion for climbing and mountaineering. We love the history of the sport. More specifically, we really really love the history of the sport in the western United States. The dreamers, the dope-smoking Stonemasters, the dirtbags and fun-hoggers, the legends who walked the Valley floor. With great reverence for those who paved this path before us, we begin our story.

 Priceless contributions, gentleman.

Scan #91 from EP's page shows Norman Clyde and Sherry in all but one frame.

Is this Tom Gerughty at the top? Could he have been the photographer?

I had meant to say that the previous cartoon I posted was dated June 1973, San Francisco.
As promised a photo of the original 'Golden Oldies' (see p.67 of "The Climbing Cartoons...").
You can just about see a faint inscription top right of the drawing which seems to read, "Dear Ken, if you likee (sic), appreciate the grand treatment like in "boulder trundle. Sheridan." The picture measures approx. 12.5" x 14".
If I find anything else I will happily share, regards, Chris Harle (Matlock, England)

Mouse: If you check out my postings on March 15 and 16 on the Norman Clyde thread

http://www.supertopo.com/climbing/thread.php?topic_id=440068&tn=120

you'll see that I posted pictures of Sheridan and Norman wearing the same clothes as in your picture. Plus there's a picture of Tom Gerughty who was there in the Soda Springs campground that evening when I took my pictures. Tom is certainly the other photographer.

Edit: Those dates would be 2010.

Bookman: Thanks for posting up the original of Sheridan's Tenzing & Hillary.

The same cartoon you reference on pg. 67 of Joe Kelsey's "The Climbing Cartoons of Sheridan Anderson" was then likely borrowed from the pages of Mountain.
