Name Notes: Mt. Chapman and Chapman Glacier, Chapman Creek (like many other peaks climbed on the 1973 BCMC ski expedition) are named after a prominent BCMC member -- Charles F. ("Chappy") Chapman, who was born in England, joined the BCMC at its beginnings in 1907 and soon became very active in exploring the mountains north of Vancouver. He also contributed greatly in getting other people interested in the mountains through his accounts of mountain trips in the local newspapers and through lectures. He was President of the BCMC from 1914-1919 and Honorary President of the club from 1952 until his death in 1960. He was elected an honorary member in 194Z and was also made a Fellow of the Royal Geographic Society for his exploration in the Coast Mountains. Notable first ascents; Mt. Seymour (1908), Mt. Mamquam (1911). The ''B.C. Mountaineer'' was printed by Chapman's firm from 1923 to 1966 and it was through his generosity that it was saved from folding a number of times.
