During his lifetime, Admiral Richard E. Byrd was involved in eleven expeditions to Antarctica. He led two private expeditions to Antarctica in 1928-1930 and 1933-1935. He merged his plans for a third private expedition to the Antarctic with governmental plans and became the commanding officer of the United States Antarctic Service expedition in 1939. In 1946-47 Admiral Byrd helped establish the U.S. Navy Antarctic Developments Project (Operation Highjump) and in his final years he was Officer in Charge of United States Antarctic Programs.
