Mackay was a member of Shackleton’s British Antarctic Expedition (1907-09) and was one of three who made the first ascent of Mount Erebus. He then went on to be part of the three-man team which first reached the South Magnetic Pole. His diary (Nov 31, 1908 thru Feb 6, 1909) describes reaching the South Magnetic Pole. This is excerpted from ‘Manuscripts in the Royal Scottish Museum Edinburgh, part 2, William S. Bruce papers and diary of A. Forbes Mackay’. Produced as a special keepsake for the SouthPole-sium v.2 held in Scotland in 2015.
