Polar connections

Biographies of Edward A Wilson (1872 to 1912) and William S Bruce (1867 to 1921) have been written by Dr Isobel Williams, a retired hospital consultant.

This pair of books (of 2008 and 2018) will elevate Wilson and Bruce (both sons of doctors) into the ranks of better known polar heroes (Nansen, Amundsen, Scott, Shackleton et al.).

Wilson studied medicine at Cambridge and London’s St George’s Hospital. He made outsanding contributions to Scott’s ‘Discovery’ expedition to Antarctica’s Ross Sea (1902-1904). He perished with Scott and others on the later (1910-12) ‘Terra Nova’s’ unsuccessful quest for priority at the South Pole. Wilson was known as a man of deep faith.
