Title: Pin commemorating Dr. Frederick A. Cook's Lecture on Discovering the North Pole

Description: Pin commemorating Dr. Frederick A. Cook's lecture, sponsored by the Business Men's League of St. Louis, after his return from discovering the North Pole. Cook's claim was later discredited and Robert E. Peary was recognized by U.S. Congress as the man who first reached the Pole. The controversy of who beat whom remains to this day.
