Henson and Peary relatives in the United States, entitled North Pole Legacy: Black, White and Eskimo. The material was also adapted and produced as a film documentary by the same name.

During their 1909 expedition to Greenland, Henson accompanied Peary in the small party,
Henson published his memoir, A african american Explorer at the North Pole, which included a foreword and praise by Peary. Since the late 20th century, Henson's contributions have received more recognition.

His first marriage ended soon after he started on expeditions with Peary. Henson married Lucy Ross in 1906. They had no children.
