Henson is named after Matthew Alexander Henson, an American explorer who accompanied Robert Peary as a navigator, craftsman and 'first man', on seven voyages to the Arctic over a period of nearly 23 years. He was one of the era's few African-American explorers, and he may have been the first man, black or white, to reach the North Pole.
For nearly a century, Henson’s contributions to polar explorations were downplayed in favor of Peary. But in 1988, Henson and his wife were reinterred at the Arlington National Cemetery, alongside Peary. In 1996, an oceanographic survey ship was named the U.S.N.S Henson in his honor; and in 2000, Henson was posthumously awarded National Geographic’s highest honor for exploration, the Hubbard Medal.
