The voyagers: John Franklin, captain of Erebus’s Arctic voyage

Franklin was a questionable choice of captain for Erebus’s 1845 journey to the Arctic. One of Britain’s most-experienced explorers, his career had been marked by controversy and near catastrophe (an earlier expedition had gone so badly wrong that he had been forced to boil and eat his boots to avoid starvation).

Nobody will ever know whether it was the style of Franklin’s leadership that ultimately doomed his Arctic voyage. By 1847, with no signal from the crew of Erebus, his wife Jane was leading the call for rescue parties to be sent to the Arctic to save him, sparking one of most dramatic searches in history.
