Race for Antartica (sic) Admiral Byrd and Pitt County

Record #:
Rear Admiral Richard E. Byrd is well known for his six major expeditions into the Polar regions, but little is known about the several Pitt Countians that served under him on these treks. Only two names are known, Ross B. Hill and Lt. A.M. Tripp, who were both part of “Operation Highjump” in 1946-47.
