Summit Magazine, 1955-96

All issues of the magazine were reviewed at the Mountaineers Library. The Mountaineers collection seems to be missing the following issues: April 1958, May 1958, June 1958 and March 1961. I reviewed every issue published during the period covered by the following table. If no issue is listed for a particular month, it means I found nothing noteworthy in it. If the Notes column says "reference," then the contents may be useful for future reference, but I haven't made detailed notes on them for now. The ID column has links to my review notes.
