Annapolis420kFrom left to right: Vice Adm. Mel Williams Jr., Commander, U.S. Second Fleet, Rear Adm. Bruce E. Grooms, Commander Submarine Group Two, Dr. S. Allen Counter, Director of the Harvard Foundation, and Cmdr. Michael Brunner, Commanding Officer of Annapolis (SSN-760), hold a glass case of memorabilia on 23 April 2009 commemorating the historic expedition of Rear Admiral Robert E. Peary and Matthew A. Henson to the top of the world.
Annapolis took the case of memorabilia to the North Pole in April to commemorate the centennial of the expedition by Peary and Henson, which took place on 6 April 1909. The commemorative case, compiled by Harvard University, contained an American flag and bible, similar to ones taken during the original expedition and books by Peary and Henson. The crew of Annapolis returned the case to a group of Harvard University staff, alumni and students, who traveled from Boston to Naval Submarine Base New London to take the case to Harvard, where it will be placed in the university archives "for present and future generations, to be used for scholarly and educational purposes." Dr. Counter spearheaded the Harvard North Pole Discovery Centennial Commemorative Project to celebrate the expedition and clarify the historic record.
