Charles Sturt
Birth: Apr. 28, 1795
Death: Jun. 16, 1869

Explorer. He joined the British army to participate in wars against Napoleon in Spain and at Waterloo. His abilities were recognized and he was sent to Australia to follow and map the Macquarie River. He reached Darling River, which he named, and proved that northern New South Wales was not a giant inland sea. He later sailed into a lake which he named Alexandrina. Because of his explorations the city of Adelaide was established. Settling in South Australia he was appointed surveyor general and later registrar general. In 1838 he again decided to explore the inland of Australia trying to reach the exact center of the continent. His explorations of inland Australia added much to people's knowledge of the interior of the continent and also established a route to the center of Australia and an overland route to Adelaide. He was treated as a hero and received a gold medal for his accomplishments. He returned to England in 1851. (bio by: julia&keld)
