Rear Admiral RICHARD EVELYN BYRD (1888-1957)
Rear Admiral RICHARD EVELYN BYRD (1888-1957) 
US Naval Officer, Pioneering Polar Explorer

An adventurous aviator, he was a winner of the Congressional Medal of Honor for his reported first flight over the North Pole. Very nice copy of Byrd's book chronicling his historic South Pole expedition, Little America: Aerial Exploration in the Antarctic-The Flight to the South Pole (GP Putnam's Sons: New York, 1930). Signed on the flyleaf "R E Byrd."
