Sir Ernest Shackleton
Shackleton was born at Kilkea House, near Athy, County Kildare, Ireland, on February 15, 1874, son of Henry Shackleton and Henrietta Letitia Sophia .
Disaster struck this expedition when its ship, Endurance, became trapped in pack ice and was slowly crushed before the shore parties could be landed. The crew escaped by camping on the sea ice until it disintegrated, then by launching the lifeboats to reach Elephant Island.
Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition, 1914–17.
Away from his expeditions, Shackleton's life was generally restless and unfulfilled. In his search for rapid pathways to wealth and security, he launched business ventures which failed to prosper, and he died heavily in debt. Upon his death, he was lauded in the press, but was thereafter largely forgotten.
Later in the 20th century, Shackleton was "rediscovered", and rapidly became a role model for leadership as one who, in extreme circumstances, kept his team together in a survival story described by polar historian Stephanie Barczewski as "incredible".
Ernest was the second of ten children and the first of two sons. He was a voracious reader and his father was a doctor.
