Quest for 90 North: Tales of Fantasy and Failure    NEW!

Have you ever wondered about the North Polar regions? As children we learned that Santa Claus lives there and that it’s the home of polar bears and lots of ice, but for most people that may be the limit of our knowledge. However, it is a land rich in history. This four-lecture series entitled Quest for the North Pole: Tales of Fantasy and Failure will take us north where we will join the extraordinary expeditions of William Parry in 1827, Fridtjof Nansen, Frederick Cook, RADM Robert Peary and many others who attempted to reach 90 degrees North. Baker has also brought Antarctica to OLLI as well as the Search for the Northwest Passage. The only requirements for this course are an open mind and curiosity.
