Biography  
Frank Stokes


An artist/explorer whose specialty for which he was most known was Arctic and Antarctic scenes, he was on Admiral Peary's expedition to Greenland from 1892 to 1894 and the Amundsen Ellsworth Antarctic Expedition of 1901 to 1902. He depicted these places on canvas for "Scribner's" magazine and other publications. Several times on these adventures, he came close to losing his life.
