Love Exploring Logo By Deborah Cicurel of Love Exploring | Slide 2 of 30: The wealthy American Arctic explorer Louise Arner Boyd broke the mold in a number of ways. Not only did she become the first woman in the world to fly over the North Pole in 1955, she was also the first female councilor of the American Geographic Society. Her intrepid exploits took her everywhere from Arctic Canada to Greenland and, of course, the North Pole, which she not only reached by plane but previously by ship and dog sled too.
