CANCELLED L310 Spring 2019 The US Ex Ex: The Greatest Adventure Lost to History
Tuesdays, 9:40–11:05, Apr. 23–Apr. 30
Two sessions
Instructor: Hank Taylor

The US Exploring Expedition of 1838–1842 was one of the most ambitious voyages of discovery the western world has ever seen. On a scale that dwarfed the journey of Lewis and Clark, six magnificent sailing vessels and a crew of hundreds set out to map the entire Pacific Ocean. It named the newly discovered continent of Antarctica, set the stage for the statehood of the Pacific Northwest and Hawaii, and provided the foundation of the Smithsonian Institution. Fraught with danger, controversy, and intrigue, its discoveries surpassed even those of Lewis and Clark.
Hank Taylor retired as an information systems engineer from MITRE in 2012. During his 47-year career he participated in the design and implementation of large-scale computer systems for both the United States and foreign governments. He holds degrees in electrical engineering and experimental psychology.
