The Antarctican Society is, as its motto says, "by and for all Antarcticans." That includes those who have had the good fortune to visit Antarctica as well as anyone interested in any aspect of it. People have always been the focus of The Antarctican Society: explorers, scientists, support persons - both military and civilian - as well as travelers to the continent.
The Antarctican Society's membership has included such illustrious Antarcticans as Dr. Laurence Gould and Dr. Paul Siple, both of whom served under Admiral Richard E. Byrd in the various Byrd Antarctic Expeditions. The current membership includes many veterans of the original International Geophysical Year (IGY) in 1957-58 and Operation Deep Freeze. We have veterans of the well-known stations such as Little America, McMurdo, Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station and Palmer as well as Byrd Station, Hallett Station, Eights Station, Plateau Station, Dome C and more than a few non-American stations. But we also have members who are active in Antarctica right now. The Antarctican Society is truly multi- generational.
