Highpoint Changes Over the Years

Response to Arthur Marshall Diary


After reading Arthur Marshall's diary I believe that Arthur went to the highest known highpoint at that time of which 10 have been determined to be different since that time:

New Mexico
Climbed North Truchas Peak 13,024' which is located south of Wheeler Peak

Reached a point in Banner County Elev. 5,340'. Panorama Point 5,424' is
located in Kimball county just south of Banner Co.

North Dakota
Climbed Black Butte 3,468' instead of White Butte 3,506'. Both are located
in Slope County.

Climbed the highest mountain in the state Bear Mtn. 2,316' rather than the
highest point 2,380' located on the state line. (Mount Frissell South

Climbed Government Peak 1,850' located in the Porcupine Mountains rather
than Mount Arvon 1,979' located 87 miles East.

Climbed Rib Mountain 1,924' rather than Timms Hill 1,951' located 67 miles

Arthur was very close, but reached a point in Randolph County rather than
nearby Wayne County.

Rhode Island
Climbed Durfee Hill 801' which is just north of Jerimoth Hill 812'.

Reached a point 21.5 miles north of Driskill Mountain near the town of Old

Climbed Iron Mountain 295' near Lake Wales, Florida. Lakewood Park 345' is
425 miles NW.

That is my best estimation of the difference in state Highpointing in the
1930's and today. This in no way diminishes A.H. Marshall's accomplishments. His adventure was one of the greatest of the 20th Century.
