PHOTO J URNAL BRADFORD WASHBURN Washburn captured Alaska's "snowy grandeur" in his 1938 photo of Mount McKinley (above). In 1951, he surveyed McKinley's Kahiltna Dome (right). Fueled by malted milk-his beloved mountain breakfast drink-Washburn was the first man to climb to the 20,320-foot peak three times. His wife, Barbara, who called him "a crazy mountain climber" before they ever met, was the first woman to summit. "He and his wife roamed the world," said Grosvenor, "and together moti vated women to join the ranks of premier explorers."
