A Holiday Vision from Dr. Stuart Grauer
Around 100 years ago, Ernest Shackleton supposedly ran an advertisement in the newspaper to try to recruit men for his Endurance expedition. The advertisement read:
Men wanted for hazardous journey.
Low wages, bitter cold, long hours of complete darkness.
Safe return doubtful.
Honour and recognition in event of success.
Last summer, our faculty reading was the book called “Endurance,” documenting Shackleton’s expedition, from which all the crew somehow returned safely, leaving their ship behind to the polar ice.
