Discovering Antarctica’s Mount Rosenwald

Posted on January 15th, 2015 by

On a National Geographic-Liblad cruise, Stephanie Deutsch got the chance to see Antarctica, where there is a mountain named after Julius Rosenwald.  The mountain “forms a distinctive landmark between the heads of the Baldwin and Gallup glaciers in the Queen Maud mountains.”  It was discovered by Rear Admiral Richard Byrd in 1929, who named it after Rosenwald.  It is an example of how Rosenwald’s influence can be found all over, or, as Aviva Kempner likes to say, “all roads lead to Rosenwald.”
