Sir Hubert Wilkins, born at Mount Bryan East on October 31st, 1888, was a man
before his time, and in regards to weather, a man for all seasons.
Wilkins was a visionary with his desire to develop a knowledge base of polar
meteorology. His outstanding achievements in surviving and travelling in the
Arctic, where he travelled 2,500 miles by dog team and boat, include his
dedication to scientific observation, which included meteorological, tidal and
oceanographic data. These observations were halted temporarily due to the
outbreak of World War 1, until his appointment as second-in-command of the
British Imperial Antarctic Expedition (1920-1921).
