In the name of exploration

Author Milbry Polk, an Honorary Fellow of The Royal Canadian Geographical Society, has received the prestigious Anne Morrow Lindbergh Award, named after the aviation pioneer. Polk is the third recipient of the award, which is given periodically to an outstanding individual who has made “positive contributions to our world.” She is the co-founder and director emeritus of Wings WorldQuest, an organization that supports women explorers around the world. “Anne Morrow Lindbergh is an iconic explorer,” says Polk, “and it is thrilling to be identified with her.”
