Short biography
Apsley Cherry-Garrard was a survivor of the ill-fated British Antarctic Expedition of 1910 that sought to be the first to reach the South Pole. Expedition leader Robert Falcon Scott and four others got to the South Pole on January 17, 1912, only to find that the Norwegian team led by Roald Amundsen had beaten them there. The five men died on the return journey. Cherry-Garrard later became a chronicler of the expedition.
