Mount Fox in the Selkirk Mountains of Canada was named, by William Green, in honour of Harry Fox who perished with William Donkin and two Swiss guides, in the Caucasus. Mount Donkin is nearby. Harry Fox (30 September 1856 – on or after 30 August 1888) was an English gentleman (also lived at Tone Dale House, Wellington, Somerset, England) who was a sportsman and adventurer. He played cricket and rugby for his country, and began climbing mountains in the mid-1880s. In 1884 he started mountaineering, and within two years he was well known in the mountain climbing community, and a well-regarded alpine explorer. In 1888, he travelled with William Frederick Donkin to the Caucasus Mountains in the Russian Empire in a bid to be the first people to climb Koshtan-Tau, but the pair, along with their Swiss guides, died in an accident. For the purposes of his will, Fox's death was recorded as being "on or since the 30th August, 1888, at some place unknown."
