No close family anniversaries. Born in Aukland, New Zealand on this date in 1919: Edmund Hilary, adventurer, explorer, and philanthropist. In 1953, Hilary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay became the first climbers to reach the summit of Mount Everest. Hilary also reached both the north and south poles in overland expeditions. Below: Hilary and Tenzing in 1953, and at a reunion around 1971.
