And while we're on the subject of people with less than stellar reputations having 14ers named after them, this is from 14ers.com's entry for Mt. Cameron:
Alternatively -- and perhaps more likely given its proximity to Mount Lincoln -- the mountain may have been named for Simon Cameron (March 8, 1799 – June 26, 1889), Republican senator from Pennsylvania and President Lincoln's first Secretary of War, whom he fired for corruption after Cameron had been in office less than ten months. Allegedly, Lincoln asked Congressman Thaddeus Stevens (also from Pennsylvania) about Cameron's honesty, and Stevens replied, "I do not believe he would steal a red hot stove." Cameron demanded a retraction, so Stevens admitted his statement might have been incorrect.
Then again, maybe an insignificant bump on a nondescript ridge, trod upon by people making their way to Lincoln, is an appropriate memorial for the man.
I have more age than experience, more experience than knowledge, and more knowledge than wisdom.
Yet somehow I usually make it back to the car safely; and oftentimes, so do the people that I'm with.
