Sir Edmund Hillary, KG, ONZ, KBE, was a New Zealander famous for being the first human to reach the summit of Mount Everest in 1953.

USS Cantabrian Captain Noel Turner met him when he was about 9 years old in 1972 when Hillary visited his school. He claimed although Hillary was a tall and rather large man, as well as famous, he took the time to talk to every single child. Turner felt bad that he couldn't recall what Hillary had said to him as he was in such awe of meeting a living legend. (Star Trek: The Cantabrian Expeditions: "Catalyst, Part Two")

The Ambassador-class USS Hillary and Rutherford-class USS Hillary were both named after Edmund Hillary. (Star Trek: The Cantabrian Expeditions: "Catalyst, Part Two")
