Rightly described as Queen of Mountaineers, Mrs. Bullock Workman has accomplished some amazing travelling and climbing feats. North Africa, Palestine, Asia Minor, Egypt, India, Java, Sumatra, and Cochin China-these are some of the out-of-the-way corners of the globe she has toured extensively and written about. With her husband, Dr. W. H. Workman, who is also a great traveller and mountaineer, she ascended the Nun Kun Peak in the Himalayas, reaching an altitude of 23,394 feet. During this climb the camp of the party was pitched for two nights at an altitude of 21,000 feet, although previous explorers had reckoned 21,500 feet as the limit at which men could live. Other great climbs accomplished by Mrs. Bullock Workman were Koser Gunge, 21,000 feet, and Mount Blugma, 22,560 feet. As a member of geographical societies in many countries, she has given many valuable lectures, and is one of the only two women who have ever read a paper before the Royal Geographical Society. In addition she has written a number of standard works on exploration and mountaineering. Mrs. Bullock Workman is the daughter of ex-governor Bullock, of Massachusetts, in which State her husband, before forced by ill-health to retire, practised as a doctor at the town of Worcester
