WELLINGTON, New Zealand -- Sir Edmund Hillary, the unassuming beekeeper who conquered Mount Everest to win renown as one of the 20th century's greatest adventurers, died Friday. He was 88.

The accomplishment as part of a British climbing expedition even added luster to the coronation of Britain's Queen Elizabeth II four days later, and she knighted Hillary as one of her first acts.

But he was more proud of his decades-long campaign to set up schools and health clinics in Nepal, the homeland of Norgay, the mountain guide with whom he stood arm-in-arm on the summit of Everest on May 29, 1953.

Bill and Hill have both stated that Hillary was named after Sir Edmund Hillary which just shows how prescient her parents were since no one had ever heard of Sir Edmund when Hillary was born in 1947.

The Clintons making stuff up? Nah!
