Commander Byrd named the radio station at Little America, Anartica, after Adolph S. Ochs, publisher of “The New York Times.”

“Your long connection with polar exploration with Peary, Scott, Amundsen and others has been an important contribution to polar discovery. You have helped make possible out North and South Pole expeditions,” Commander Byrd declared in a message to Mr. Ochs.

“It seems proper therefore to name this station, the southernmost one by many hundreds of miles, the Adolph Ochs Radio Station.”
