THE 1960s

This is a nod to Eric Maxwell, the man who started the catalogue of Munroists and Furthists in 1960 with his article Quod Erat Faciendum ('What Is Required' in Scotland and beyond its borders). He updated this annually in the Grampian Club Bulletin until 1971. By this time, the Scottish Mountaineering Club had taken over maintaining his list. 

The following information covers the 1960s, and is presented in Maxwellian fashion, with additional details [gleaned from elsewhere]. It may prove impossible to establish final Furths for some individuals, as a number of them may, sadly, no longer be with us. At least precise dates help with the completion timeline.
