Dr. ELisha Mitchell, for whom Mount Mitchell was named, we a professor at the University of North Carolina for forty years. He was born in Washington, Connecticut, on August 19, 1793, and was graduated from Yale University. After teaching school for a time, he returned to Yale as a tutor at the age of 23. The next year, he became Professor of Mathematics at the University of North Carolina, In 1825, he was appointed to fill the chairs of chemistry, mineralogy, and geology. By this time, too, he was an ordained Presbyterian minister, and had been made a Doctor of Divinity. The New England influence of Dr. Mitchell is still seen around Chapel Hill in the unmortared stone walls throughout the village and surrounding the campus.


There is a lingering question of who first measured this the highest peak in eastern America. This question is a result of a statement made in 1855 by Senator Thomas Lanier Clingman that Dr. Mitchell did not measure it. Furthermore, Senator Clingman stated that he was the first person to measure the highest Black Mountain peak. This was the year 1855 and there is no doubt that Senator Clingman did measure this peak in that year. His measurement was 6,941 feet, and was later proved to be several hundred feet higher than the actual peak. This was also several hundred feet higher than Dr. Mitchell's claim which was first 6,476, and which he later corrected to 6,672 feet.


In the summer of 1835, after hearing from the botanist Francois Andre Michaux that the highest peak in eastern United States was in the Carolina Appalachians, Dr. Mitchell undertook to take barometeric [sic] measurements of the highest peaks of the Black Mountains. One of them he found to be 6,476 feet above sea level and he later corrected this measurement to 6,672 feet.

The President of the University, David L. Swain, quickly took advantage of this information. At his instigation, Smith's Geography and Atlas stated in 1839 that Mount Mitchell in North Carolina had been ascertained to be the highest point of land in the United States east of the Rocky Mountains.

Dr. Mitchell again visited the Carolina Mountains in 1838 and 1844 and made extensive measurements of seventeen peaks.


Then in 1855, Senator Clingman stated his extremely high measurement of almost 7,000 feet. Senator Clingman, who was trained as a lawyer, was born in Huntsville, North Carolina, July 27, 1812, and died at Morganton, November 3, 1897. He was a graduate of the University of North Carolina, practiced law, and was later a Congressman, United States Senator, Confederate Brigadier General, and was wounded twice during the Civil War. Irrespective of his achievements in other fields of life, his claim that Dr. Mitchell did not measure the highest peak of the Black Mountain group is supported by very weak evidence, and it is difficult to understand why he tried to discredit Dr. Mitchell's work. Perhaps the reason for his wishing to discredit Dr. Mitchell may be found in his character. He was described as "an intrepid man, with prodigious conceit, stupendous aspirations, immense claims, more than common ability, and much curiosity".

(Continued Over)


Regardless of Senator Clingman's motives, Dr. Mitchell had no way of proving that he had measured the highest Yancey County peak in 1835, 1838, or even in 1844. So in 1856, he made further surveys of the mountain, and the following summer he visited Mount Mitchell for the last time before his death.

About the middle of June, 1857, he set up his camp at the foot of the Black Mountains with his son, Charles, his daughter, and a servant. He started his measurements at the lower levels and after two weeks had reached an altitude of about 6,000 feet. Then Saturday afternoon, June 27, he stopped work and told his son that he was going to visit Big Tom Wilson and William Riddle, former guides, on the other side of the mountain. He said he would return by Monday noon.


On Monday, Charles Mitchell was at the meeting place but his father did not appear. Nor did he return on the next day. There was apparently no cause for alarm so no further searches were made until Thursday morning. Then Charles Mitchell and a guide set out for Big Tom's. No trace of Dr. Mitchell was found until Tuesday. Big Tom, a famous hunter and experienced mountaineer, recalled that he had guided Dr. Mitchell up the mountain in 1844. He believed the Professor had taken the same route which they had traveled thirteen years before.

Leading a small party, Big Tom soon found traces of Dr. Mitchell and followed that four miles to the edge of a forty-foot fall of water. At the aide of the precipice they could see where the moss had been torn away.

The body of Professor Mitchell lay at the bottom of the falls in a pool fourteen feet deep. His watch had stopped at 8:10 the evening of June 27.

Darkness, or near darkness, had overtaken him on his way down. The spot where he was killed was only an hour or two from Big Tom's. Realizing this, he must have decided to follow a stream to the settlement and in the darkness stepped off the precipice. Today Mitchell Falls remains unchanged in its course. It lies about a mile from the summit of the mountain.


Dr. Mitchell's remains were taken to Asheville and buried in the First Presbyterian Church cemetery on July 10, 1857.

But the circumstances and cause of his death made him a martyr, and there was universal demand that he be buried on Mount Mitchell. On June 16 of the following year, the body of Dr. Mitchell was reburied on the summit of the mountain.

Bone of the scientists who measured Mount Mitchell at that time were accurate in their surveys. A point in Dr. Mitchell's favor is that his corrected height of 6,672 feet missed the present measurement by only 12 feet. Even measurements as late as 1929 were more than twice this margin of error.

W.J. .Damtoft Esq.
The Champion Paper and Fibre Company
C a n t o n , .N.C.

My dear Damtoft

How nice of you that you thought of me when reading a clipping on "The Biltmore Immortals" in the good old Asheville "Daily Citizen". Naturally, my little soul is hopping over continuously to the U.S.A. and notably to Western North Carolina and here, 1 assure you, notably to Sunburst where the Forest School had a glorious time in 1910. Be it known for ever that. the Biltmore Forest School was saved from derision and actual death at the time by one Reuben Robertson. It happened thusly: George Vanderbilt refused us the use of -Pisgah Forest where I was owning at the time two tracts. As a consequence we did not have any footing what-so-ever in Western North Carolina when we returned (the Biltmore Forest School and I) from a winter spent in Germany. And here Mr. Robertson stepped in and gave us the use of his brand-new Sunburst village where we found everything and notably some very interesting logging operations conducted in the woods on a really modern scale.

I an delighted to learn that some of my best boys such as Verne Rhoades, Franklin Reed, "Capt" Eldridge and Ed Conger are friends of yours.

The clipping is mistaken when it states that 1 «as at any time, assistant to Gifford Pinchot at Biltmore. Gifford Pinchot had left Biltmore and had opened an office as a, consulting forester in New York .when I came. True, when I landed in America he told me that he would be my chief and that I would work au him at Biltmore. To my surprise George Vanderbilt told me when I arrived in Biltmore that .Pinchot had nothing to do any longer with the Biltmore Estate.

- 2 -

Do not let us talk about it. Let us forget all animosity that may have been and retain merely the friendships. 0f these, thank God, I have a great number in the U.S.A. and it is  this friendship which keeps me, continuously, in spite of my high old age, in a happy mood.

With kind regards all around Biltmore, Asheville and Canton, very sincerely yours

Dr. G.A. Schenck
