VIVIAN FUCHS. Signature: "Vivian Fuchs/1972", 4½x2½ sheet with letterhead of British Antarctic Survey, affixed to irregularly cut 7¼x9½ page. Also affixed to the page are 3 b/w, captioned magazine photos of Fuchs celebrating with Sir Edmund Hilary at the U.S. polar base (3¼x2¾), in bust view (1¾x2¼) and addressing a reception in his honor in New Zealand (6¾x3¼), as well as a clipped London postmark (June 1, 1972) and clipped return address of the British Antarctic Survey. Geologist Fuchs (1908-1999) led a 12-person Transantarctic Expedition on the first land crossing of Antarctica. Starting from the Weddell Sea, he reached Scott Station on March 2, 1958, after traveling 2,158 miles in 98 days. This land crossing proved conclusively that under the polar ice sheet there existed the single continent of Antarctica. Fuchs, who directed the British Antarctic survey from 1958 to 1973, was knighted in 1958. Lower corners of signed sheet are clipped. Stray ink marks on mounting sheet. Otherwise, fine condition.
