BRUCE, William Speirs (1867 – 1921)

Arctic, and particularly Antarctic explorer. He led the Scottish National Antarctic Expedition which sailed from Troon in November 1902. One hundred years later, it was recognised that it had “laid the foundation of modern climate change studies”, and that its experimental work had showed that part of the globe to be crucially important to the world’s climate.
