Apsley Cherry-Garrard (1886-1959) was a surviving member of the Terra Nova expedition to the South Pole in 1910-1913. One of the youngest members of the expedition at 24, Garrard was twice rejected before being accepted to the expedition (following a large financial gift) as an assistant biologist. His journals and memoirs form the basis for THE WORST JOURNEY IN THE WORLD.
