This Day That Age
The Press in London went to town publicising Sherpa Tenzing Norgay, who along with Edmund Hillary, had climbed Mount Everest in June. Tenzing's pictures, and details of his life and exploits, were splashed by morning newspapers.
The Daily Express in an introductory paragraph of its editorial called him "Tiger" Tenzing. The story of the conquest of the highest mountain in the world was also given in detail. The News Chronicle had a widespread front page photograph of Tenzing on arrival in Rome with his wife and two daughters. Hillary too was in the picture. On the leader page, commenced the first of a series of articles under the heading "Tenzing Story a Dream of High Hills."
In the top leader dealing with the triumph of Hillary and Tenzing the Chronicle said: "Courage is a common glory to be seen and saluted in the men and women of all classes and all creed in all parts of an imperfect world. Courage is an attribute of Edmund Hillary, the bee-keeper from New Zealand and Tenzing Norgay, the Sherpa from Nepal whom it is the privilege of London to greet to-day."
