Laurence M. Gould!

The vessel that we are traveling on is named for Laurence McKinley Gould, an Antarctic explorer who was second-in-command on Admiral Richard E. Byrd's first Antarctic expedition of 1929-1930.  Gould later became a professor of geology at Carleton College, and eventually its president.  He died in 1995 when he was 99, the same year the boat that bears his name was chartered by the National Science Foundation.
