Do you have any information about what specific (maker and model) navigational, mapping ,and scientific instrumentation Peary took on the expedition? Was there a listing of all the items which went on the journey?They obviously had to make some choices with regard to the weight, quality, and durability in the polar environment of the instruments then available (transits, compasses, alidades, etc.). Are these pieces extant in the Smithsonian or other repositories?
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
Thank you for your email, for permission to use chapter1 of Dark Companion,
and for the enthusiasm you have expressed about the USNS HENSON. The ship is
magnificent. It is also a fitting tribute to Matthew Henson. Thanks for
helping make it so.
When I wrote last I ordered a single copy of Dark Companion for myself. I
would, in addition, also like to order three copies to put on the ship and
in our library.
USNS HENSON poster is being framed as we speak. I will forward it to
To: "'Bradley@matthewhenson.com'" <Bradley@matthewhenson.com>
I received a copy of your e-mail to Al Lewando concerning your desire for information concerning the USNS HENSON (T-AGS 63). As the Program Manager for these ships, I have collected information about each one as they were built. Attached you will find several files and photos that might be of interest. The photographs were provided to us by the Ship Builder, Halter Marine, Inc.
The HENSON is currently underGoing mission system testing in the Gulf of Mexico, operating out of Pensacola, FL. We plan to bring the ship to the Marine Technology Society Conference this fall in Baltimore, MD. The dates are 16-20 November. At some point the ship will be open for public tours. I don't have a lot of details yet as we have just put this in the schedule. It is my understanding that members of the Henson Family may be riding the ship from Norfolk, VA to Baltimore. No exact date yet as arrangements have not been made but it would probably be the weekend before.
I can provide more info in the future. If you want to find out more info you can try http://oceanographer.navy.mil. They have links to lots of oceanographic places. You might try http://voyager.snc.edu/ for info about educational programs with NAVO.
