RICHARD E. BYRD
The famed polar explorer signs his name on a check to Kidder Peabody & Co. for the amount of $9,016.05
Check signed: "R E Byrd", in faded black ink, 6½x2¾. Check no. 27 drawn on the account of R. E. Byrd at Liberty National Bank, payable to Kidder Peabody & Co. for $9,016.05. April 18, 1920. On May 9, 1926, Richard Evelyn Byrd (1888-1957) and Floyd Bennett became the first to fly over the North Pole. Both were awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor. Scholars have raised questions about whether or not Byrd actually reached the North Pole but all have agreed Byrd thought he had reached the North Pole. In 1929, Byrd established the "Little America" Antarctica base and flew (indisputably) over the South Pole. He was promoted to Rear Admiral upon his return in 1930. On his Antarctic expeditions in the 1930s, Byrd discovered Marie Byrd Land and the Edsel Ford Mountains. Still exploring in his late 60s, he commanded the Operation High Jump (1946-1947) and Operation Deep Freeze (1955-1956) operations. Folds. Cancellation holes. Ink lightly faded. Fine condition.
