Explore Exhibit: The Yeti · September 2, 2014


I believe in the yeti. I have seen his tracks, heard his yelping calls, listened to first-hand experiences of local people…Indeed, why should he not exist?

When Lord John Hunt wrote these words in 1954, the Yeti was an oft-circulating topic of discussion among climbers and explorers. Indeed, it was an obsession for many— trips to the Himalaya at the time weren’t only for climbing, but also for scientific research into the nature of the beast.

With the help of the invaluable resources of the AAC Library, we’ve also obsessed over the Yeti and put together an online exhibit that examines the search for the mythical creature. With great excitement, we bring you the fruits of our explorations The Yeti!
