American Geographical Society awards honor Henson, Smith on April 15 at UD
Date:4/6/2009

that he asked him to join him on his arctic adventures over the next two decades, culminating in the 1909 expedition to the North Pole.

Peary repeatedly acknowledged that he could not have reached the top of the world-a feat many believe to have been accomplished on April 6, 1909 - without Henson, who learned all he could from the native Inuit people, including their language, how to build a camp and repair sledges, drive a dog team, make fur clothing, and hunt.

Although Henson's role went largely unacknowledged at the time, later in life he was awarded honorary degrees by Howard University and Morgan College, given lifetime membership in the Explorers Club, and honored at the White House by President Eisenhower. In 1951, he signed the AGS Fliers' and Explorers' Globe at a lavish ceremony in New York's Waldorf Astoria Hotel. Upon his death in 1955, Henson was buried in Woodlawn Cemetery in New York City. In 1988, he was re-interred as a hero, at Arlington National Cemetery alongside Peary.

Leila Savoy Adrade, Henson's great-great grandniece, will accept the Cullum Medal on his behalf. Deirde C. Stam of the Palmer School of Library and Information Science, Long Island University, will offer remarks about Henson's life and accomplishments. In February, Stam republished Henson's 1912 autobiographical account of his North Pole journey. Issued through the Explorers Club of New York, the 2009 edition contains a wealth of new information about Henson.

Peter Smith, senior research scientist at the University of Arizona's Lunar and Planetary Laboratory, led NASA's Phoenix Mars Mission. The Phoenix Mars Lander, the first in NASA's Scout class, was launched on August 4, 2007, and touched down in the Martian arctic on May 25, 2008, to search the soil of the Red Planet for the building blocks of life.

During five months of operations, the probe confirmed the presence of frozen water just below the planet's surface, found minerals tha
