Gore-Booth Henry William
For the first time, Gori-Butt became known to geographers for his voyage into the Arctic seas in 1879, when he accompanied A.G. Markhem in the campaign to the arch. ZFI on the yacht "Polar Bear". Although it was not possible to reach the archipelago, the expedition proved to be very useful for studying the state of ice between Novaya Zemlya and Spitsbergen. In 1882, he was the organizer and one of the participants of the expedition to rescue B. Lee-Smith and his team.

main themes of his works were the Arctic, traveling on a yacht,
hunting for whales, sharks, polar bears.
In 1872, he was appointed supreme sheriff of the county.
Died of flu in St. Moritz.
