Storyboard Text

  • Robert Peary graduated from Maine's Bowdoin College in 1877 and then joined the U.S. Navy Corps of Engineers in 1881. This experience gave Henry a drive to explore the Arctic.
  • Matthew Henson began traveling the world at age 12 as a cabin boy on a merchant ship. He was also an American civil engineer.
  • Peary and Henson first met in 1888. They decided they wanted to explore Greenland and try and make it to the North Pole together.
  • They brought their expedition before the American Geographical Society of New York for approval.
  • Throughout the 1890s they explored Greenland in depth. However, their greatest find was in 1909 when they departed for the North Pole.
  • Once in the Arctic, they traveled by by dogsled. On April 6th, 1909, they claimed to have reached the North Pole. Modern scientists claim that they were, in reality, a few miles off. (McCammack 1-2).
