ADOLPHUS W. GREELY
Established meteorological station in the Arctic.
AQS: "A.W. Greely", 1p, 5x2¾. In full: "Do your work each/day as best you can--/then you will have no/regrets." In 1881, Greely commanded the U.S. expedition to establish an Arctic meteorological station. He established Fort Conger on Ellesmere Island and attained the most northerly point reached up to that time, 83°24' N (North Pole = 90° N). Greely lost 19 of his 25 men when relief ships failed to appear (1883-1884). He was later in charge of building and operating telegraph lines in Cuba, China, the Philippine Islands and Alaska. Greely also oversaw relief operations in San Francisco after the 1906 earthquake and fire. Ink slightly smudged in "each". Lightly creased, shaded at left margin, soiled at upper blank corners.
