DMS, Camillus students learn about 500-year-old Incan mummy

A rockslide triggered by ash from a nearby volcano uncovered the mummy’s frozen burial site in 1995 on Mount Ampato in the Andes Mountains of Peru. The National Geographic Society asked the U.S. air-conditioner manufacturer to build and donate a refrigerated case that would allow the ice maiden, dubbed “Juanita,” to be displayed in a museum while preserving the delicate temperature and humidity balance she required.
 
Mr. Ferguson was one of the engineers on the Carrier team that built the cases. He recounted his experiences Nov. 7, in the DMS auditorium.
