DR. JOHN OLIVER LA GORCE

December 05, 1955

Two mountains, one mountain range, one lake, a small glacier, an arch, a meteorological station and one golf club have been named after Dr. John Oliver La Gorce of Washington, D.C., who is shown here with his famed collection of weapons. He is 75 years old and recently he celebrated his 50th anniversary with the National Geographic Society of which he is president. A lifelong fisherman of note, Dr. La Gorce once harpooned a 3,000-pound manta ray, and it is an unusual winter when he isn't bonefishing at Bimini. A pioneer auto racing driver in his salad days, he coaxed a 1903, chain-driven Thomas Flyer up to the then spanking speed of 70 mph to win a Baltimore road race.
