KODACHROMESBY C. W. M. SWITHINBANK (ABOVE), TIONAL GEOGRAPHICPHOTOGRAPH Pin-pointing flagged markers, glaciologist Alfred W. Stuart of Ohio State University peers through a theod olite to compute movements in Antarctica's vast Ross Ice Shelf. Scientific findings gathered around the world are incorporated into National Geographic maps. King-sized corkscrew enables members of the Society sponsored Michigan State University expedition, led by Dr. Maynard Miller, to probe an Alaskan glacier for ice samples (left). The Society also supported the Tarr Martin expeditions to Alaska in 1909-11, a pioneering effort in the science of glaciology. Squinting in the Himalayan sun, Barry C. Bishop of the National Geographic staff photographs and maps the Mingbo Valley in Nepal. Mr. Bishop and Dr. Miller will represent the Society in next year's assault on Everest by an American team of climbers and scientists.
