Biography

SK2 Andrew Burl Moulder was responsible for seeing that all the cargo was properly unloaded and put away so that it could be found in the middle of the winter when it was needed. To coordinate with the aircraft loadmaster and the equipment operators on the ground, he was frequently at the cargo ramp. During the late summer when temperatures are cold, the aircraft engines create a zero-visibility ice fog behind the aircraft...during such conditions on 14 February 1966 (Pole time, 13 February EST) he was crushed between the 20-ton cargo sled and the aircraft ramp. Death was instantaneous.

In recognition of Andrew Burl Moulder, a mountain was named for him. Moulder Peak is in the Ellsworth Mountains 685 miles grid west of Pole. The USGS recently sent this photo and map segment to Moulder's family.

Feature Name: Moulder Peak Feature Type: summit Latitude: 80º05´S Longitude: 083º02´W Description: A sharp peak 3 mi SE of Mount Rosenthal in the Liberty Hills, Heritage Range. Named by US-ACAN for storekeeper Andrew B. Moulder, USN, who was fatally injured in a cargo unloading accident at South Pole Station, Feb. 13, 1966.
