WAN was the sole winner on this quiz.  I'd be willing to bet that he knew it was Hibbing.

Sure, @FISH, if I see any updates - mentions of the expedition I will post them.
Thanks @Rikki Gins . Ernest Shackleton was an outstanding fellow. I always admired his loyalty to his crew.  The Irish are known for their loyalty. Shackleton was born in Kilkea, County Kildare, Ireland.
