Harald A. Foss was an avid outdoors-man and also a climber. He created SAR (Search-And-Rescue, which is now known as NASAR) to improve the chance of survival in the wilderness when things go awry. Today SAR is the primary organization that executes rescue operations in wilderness environments, especially the mountains. Hal Foss Peak in the Olympic range was named after this man.
