Description Transcript (40, 39 pages) of two interviews by Elizabeth Shuput with Alexis Kelner on October 13 and November 7, 2006
Abstract Kelner (b. 1938) recalls hiking with his parents while they were in a post-World War II displaced persons camp in Germany. The family eventually came to Utah under the sponsorship of the Unitarian Church. Kelner's outdoor activities in Utah included caving, hiking, and rock climbing. He describes various climbs in the mountains of Utah, Wyoming, and Colorado, and details his participation in environmental controversies in the 1960s and 1970s. Other topices include the Lone Peak wilderness area proposal, Deedee Corradini, the Olympics Feasibility Committee, climbing Shiprock in New Mexico, kayaks, Cal Giddings, the Wasatch Mountain Club, the Ute Alpine Club, and the Save Our Canyons organization.
