"During the more than 50 years of his seafaring life, Captain Robert (Bob) Abram Bartlett skippered some of the most famous, dangerous, and controversial exploratory expeditions to the Arctic," wrote Robert Peary in The North Pole.
Bartlett led over forty expeditions and in 1909 was awarded the Hubbard Medal by the National Geographic Association and in 1925 the Daly Medal by the American Geographical Society. The Canadian Coast Guard ship CCGS Bartlett is named in his honour.
