Fridtjof Nansen (10 October 1861 – 13 May 1930) was a Norwegian explorer, scientist, diplomat, humanitarian and Nobel Peace Prize laureate. In his youth a champion skier and ice skater, he led the team that made the first crossing of the Greenland interior in 1888, cross-country skiing on the island, and won international fame after reaching a record northern latitude of 86°14′ during his North Pole expedition of 1893–96. Although he retired from exploration after his return to Norway, his techniques of polar travel and his innovations in equipment and clothing influenced a generation of subsequent Arctic and Antarctic expeditions. The National Library of Norway's collection is a vast treasure chest of information and experiences about Norway, Norwegians and Norwegian culture and history. And as the Norwegians have been and still are a travelling people, the collection is supplemented from the world at large. You can find unique collections of manuscripts, special collections of books, music, radio and TV programs, film, theatre, maps, posters, pictures, photographs and newspapers.
