This bio of Henson needs updating and correcting. He never "earned" a Harvard degree although he was awarded honorary degrees elsewhere. His "credentials" did not impress Peary. Skills, yet, but credentials, no. An admirable person, no doubt, but recognition was reluctantly given him, due in large part to racial attitudes of his time.
