The Shackleton of his day, Leopold McClintock (1819-1907), was one of the best-known Arctic explorers of the Victorian era. He successfully undertook four major voyages of discovery as well as epic sledge journeys and was the first explorer to bring back definitive information on the lost Franklin party. In 1884 he rose to the position of Admiral and was consulted by Scott before he undertook his Discovery expedition in 1901.
