Caption: Fridtjof Nansen (1861-1930), Norwegian explorer, biologist and humanitarian. In 1888 he was the first to cross the Greenland ice sheet and showed that it covered the entire island. During 1893 to 1896, in his specially-strengthened ship Fram, drifting locked in ice, and then marching on foot, Nansen reached a record northwards latitude of 86 degrees 13.6 minutes. Nansen also wrote books on the Inuit, and the central nervous system. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1922 for his refugee relief work. This photograph is from the Bain News Service, one of the USA's earliest news picture libraries. The photographs date from the 1890s to the 1930s.
