Robert Peary

Robert Peary was born May 6, 1856 in Cresson Pennsylvania. He died February 20, 1920 in Washington DC.

In 1898 Robert Peary and Matthew Henson started looking for a way to the North Pole.

Their first try didn’t go too well, but in 1905, they tried again and they sailed on the Roosevelt, a ship built to break through ice.

But really bad weather made them turn back.

They tried for a third time, but this time by dogsled led from Ellesmere Island.

On April 6, 1909, they actually reached the North Pole.

They returned to a great greeting.
