Douglas Mawson was on the $100 not from 1984 to 1991.


Mawsons hut is still down in Antarctica.

IN ANTARCTICA

The expiedition of 1911 to 1914 aimed to see if a man could survive in Antarctica.


I dont think Mawson was prepared because he didnt bring enough food for him and his companions to survive.


he brought with him 17 explorers, 50 sheep, some dogs and a load of coal.
