Vaughan (1905-2005) was an American dogsled driver and explorer whose first claim to fame was participating in Admiral Byrd's first Antarctic Expedition, 1928-1930. He also ran dog teams in a professional capacity as part of a search and rescue unit in World War II, in sporting events like the Olympics and the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race, and in three Presidential Inauguration ceremonies. His autobiography includes his 2004 first ascent of Antarctica’s Mount Vaughan (10,302’) just three days prior to his 89th birthday. He was the last surviving member of Byrd’s team.
