Edward Wilson

Edward “Bill” Wilson was a member of Captain Scott’s last fateful expedition to the South Pole in 1911-1912. Wilson’s mother’s maiden name was Whishaw. He was my grandmother’s first cousin. If he had survived, he would have trained as a Church of England priest. Besides being the doctor on the expedition, he was also an ornithologist, a naturalist and a painter.
