Roberts developed an interest in polar matters at an early age and went on to have a career in both Arctic and Antarctic exploration. He organized and led the Cambridge University Expedition to Vatnajokull in Iceland (1932) and the Cambridge University Expedition to Scoresby Sund in East Greenland (1933). He then joined the British Graham Land Expedition, 1934-1937, as an ornithologist and was later involved in drafting the Antarctic Treaty of 1959. In 1961 he became the official UK observer for the US Naval 'Operation Deep-Freeze'. This is a collection of reminiscences by 35 of Roberts’ contemporaries.
