Name Notes: Named after Fredrik Hjalmar Johansen (1867-1913), another of Norway's famous acrtic explorers. He joined Fridtjof Nansen's polar expedition with Fram in 1893 and skied a point that was a record north in 1895/96. On their return to Norway the crew was celebrated as heroes. Johansen was promoted to captain in the infantry, a role he didn't manage. He drank heavily and left the army. He rehabilitated during his stay at Spitzbergen from 1907 to 1909. In 1910 he was one of Roald Amundsen's men in Antarctica but was not part of the south pole group.
