In August 1914, Ernest Shackleton, the British explorer, sailed to the Antarctic with the bold objective of being the first to walk across the frozen continent from the Weddell Sea to the Ross Sea, crossing the South Pole.
"I've always admired the Shackleton story, in part because I'm a wannabe explorer," Ms. Ralls said Tuesday. "But it was a remarkable achievement, and there have been case studies done on Shackleton's leadership, including one at Harvard."
