Robert Peary is recognized in our "Men of Adventure" week for his life of Arctic Expedition. For most of the 20th century, he was credited with leading the first expedition to the North Pole. More recently, many question whether he actually made it all the way to the pole on his expedition. It is fair to say that he led one of the very early expeditions that got really close to the pole. In my book, that is good enough to be recognized in our Man of Adventure Week.
