"When Peary and Matthew Henson, America's greatest Negro explorer, went to Greenland in 1891, the quest for the North Pole was just taking form in Peary's mind. It grew into a determined challenge between these men and the elements in the subsequent expedition and the many that followed, until eighteen years later, on the seventh expedition, Peary, a tired man of fifty-three, crippled by the amputation of his toes ten years previously, and Henson, the great Negro, stood side by side at the apex of the earth." Bradley Robinson, 1947
