The Australian, Sir George Hubert Wilkins, was an Arctic explorer, pilot, soldier, geographer, and photographer. Born in 1888, his photographic skills earned him a place on various Arctic expeditions even before he became a pilot. Wilkins led the failed Nautilus Expedition to the North Pole in 1931. Despite his failure to meet his objective, he proved that submarines were capable of operating beneath the polar ice cap, paving the way for future missions. In 1942, he became a student of The Urantia Book and supporter of the Urantia movement.
