Sir Francis Leopold McClintock
Birth: Jul. 8, 1819, Ireland
Death: Nov. 17, 1907

Explorer. He is famous for his discoveries in the Canadian Arctic and for discovering the fate of the Franklin Expedition. He joined the Royal Navy as a gentleman volunteer in 1831 and from 1848 took part in a number of searches for Sir John Franklin's missing North West Passage expedition. He pioneered the use of human hauled sleds, which continued to be used until the death of Captain Robert Falcon Scott. He was given his first Arctic command in 1848, and surveyed and mapped Melville Island, and also discovered Prince of Wales Island and Prince Patrick Island. He also explored 800 miles of unknown coastline as part of Captain Henry Kelletts' 1854 expedition. In 1857 he commanded the yacht "Fox" in an expedition paid for by public subscription and Lady Jane Franklin, to search again for her lost husband. In 1859 he discovered the only official record of Franklin's missing expedition, publishing an account of the mission in "The Voyage of the Fox in the Arctic Seas; A Narrative of the Fate of Sir John Franklin and His Companions" (1859). He reached the rank of Rear Admiral before retiring from the Royal Navy in 1884. MacKlintok Island, Franz Josef Land, Russia is named after him. (bio by: js)
