Bradford Washburn

Bradford Washburn was Founding Director of Boston's Museum of Science and served as Director for forty years.  Known as a mountaineer, explorer, cartographer and aerial photographer, Washburn traveled the world for eight decades, documenting landscapes from the Grand Canyon to the Alps, from Mount McKinley to the Matterhorn. Ansel Adams called Washburn a "roving genius of mind and mountains." This Genius inspired him to pioneer photographic techniques that captured the most remote and inaccessible points on earth, under conditions worthy of a stunt man.
