  • Kat Hahn

    Eduard Imhof (25 January 1895 – 27 April 1986) was a professor of cartography at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Zürich, from 1925 – 1965. His fame, which extends far beyond the Institute of Technology, stems from his relief shading work on school maps and atlases.

Everest. Buddhists believe a goddess lives in the mountain and she decides who summits, who doesn't, who makes it down safely, and who doesn't. She doesn't take kindly to big egos or those who try to "conquer" her. Humble respect always.

In the early 1960s Eduard Imhof included this 1:100,000 map in his seminal Schweizerischer Mittelschulatlas.
