VIVIAN FUCHS
Vivian Fuchs sends an autograph letter of thanks for the birthday wishes.
Autograph Letter Signed: "V. E. Fuchs", 6½x8. Cambridge, England, 1974 April 29. On his personal letterhead to Mr. Allen. In full: "Two days ago I received your letter of good wishes for my birthday on 11th February. I do not know why it took so long to reach me, but it was extremely kind of you to write. I liked the quote from the Senator - if everyone took stock of himself on his birthday many would benefit. With best wishes, Yours Sincerely." Vertical fold at the "V" of signature. Slightly soiled at upper margin. Fine condition. Accompanied by original envelope, 6x3. Addressed in Fuchs' hand to Robert F. Allen Jr., Lewiston, Maine. 8-pence stamp affixed, postmarked Cambridge, England, date unreadable. Opened at top. Slightly soiled. Overall, fine condition. Geologist Vivian 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. Two items.
