ADOLPHUS W. GREELY
The Major General pens his signature on a 4x3 card
Autograph Sentiment signed: "Yours Truly/ A.W. Greely", 4x3 card. Adolphus W. Greely (1844-1935) survived two years of Arctic winters on Ellesmere Island (1882-1884) without being re-supplied and losing 19 of his 25 men. It was the most northerly point (83°24' N) reached by that date. He became, by order of Pres. Cleveland, a Brigadier General and Chief of the Signal Corps of the Army in March 1887 of the following year. In that post, he was responsible over the next 20 years for construction of tens of thousands of miles of telegraph lines and submarine cables in Puerto Rico, Cuba, the Philippines, Alaska and elsewhere and for the Army's earliest adoption of wireless telegraphy. He was promoted to Major General in 1906. In 1935, he received the Congressional Medal of Honor. Light adhesive residue on verso. Fine condition.
