Sommaire

Historique

L'Alpine Club fut créé le 22 décembre 1857 par un groupe d'alpinistes (issu des Public schools) britanniques au Ashley's Hotel de Covent Garden à Londres, E. S. Kennedy présidant la séance. John Ball fut élu le premier président et Kennedy vice-président : « The object of the Alpine Club is to facilitate association among those who possess a similarity of taste, and to enable its members to make arrangements for meeting at some suitable locality whence they may in company undertake any of the more difficult mountain excursions, and to give to all an opportunity of consulting the maps and books to be placed in the rooms which it is expected the Club will eventually possess. The members will occasionally dine together at their own expense, but the funds of the Club will be made available when on suitable occasions the Club is favoured by the presence of geographical explorers, or by that of other guests of celebrity. »[1]
