National Geographic Caving References

[Glenn's Caving Contents Page]


Introduction

What's here?

This page presents an extensive list of 227 articles in National Geographic magazine which contain references to caving related subjects. This includes:

There is no Search facility, but the Find function of your WWW browser can be used to locate reference to whatever cave, location or subject you are interested.

This page also contains a list of issues which we suspect to contain articles with caving references but we have not actually sighted these to verify the fact. Check your library. If you have any of these issues then we would appreciate it if you could please let us know what they contain in terms of subjects given above.

I need that issue...

The best places to obtain cheap back issues of National Geographic magazines are second-hand book shops, but be prepared to wade through stacks of hundreds of National Geographic magazines in search of that elusive issue.

If you desperately need information from an article then please contact one of us and we will see what we can do. Between us we have copies of nearly all the issues containing articles.

How was this put together?

It all started on 10th September 1996 when Paul posted a message in Cavers Digest issue 5359, Topic 10. He listed some articles up to 1981 and asked for some updates. Glenn emailed Paul with updates from the list that he had going back to 1895. Glenn and Paul put together an Excel spreadsheet over the next couple of months. At the same time Paul, Glenn and Erica collected more issues and searched for issues in libraries. Glenn set up a Works database in March 1997 and used a program to generate this HTML page.

We would love to hear about any new references or corrections that you may have. Currently, new and updated references are being added about once every two months.

Caveats

The authors of this list reserve the right to modify it at any time without notice. The accuracy of the information is not guaranteed and we will not be held responsible for its use in any way. This is a purely voluntary effort and we are in no way associated with the National Geographic Society.
