June 11
Sir John Franklin
By Alfred, Lord Tennyson (1809–1892)
 
          The Arctic explorer. These lines are on his monument in Westminster Abbey. He died in the Polar regions on June 11.

NOT here! the white North has thy bones; and thou
  Heroic sailor-soul,
Art passing on thine happier voyage now
  Toward no earthly pole.
