Ludwig Von Hagemeister

Ludwig August von Hagemeister (Russian: Лео́нтий Андриа́нович Гагеме́йстер; Leonty Andrianovich Gagemeyster; 1780– December 24, 1833) was a Russian seafarer of Baltic German origin and explorer of the Pacific Ocean, Captain of the 1st rank.

In 1806-1807, Hagemeister journeyed from Kronstadt to Russian America, crossing the Atlantic, Indian, and Pacific Oceans in his ship Neva. In 1808–1809, he explored the shores of Alaska and made trips to the North Pacific. Hagemeister returned to St. Petersburg through Siberia in 1810. He was chairman of the Admiralty of Irkutsk from 1812 to 1815, in which capacity Hagemeister was responsible for the building of the first ships for crossing Lake Baikal. From 1816 to 1819, he was in charge of the Russian-American Company ship Kutuzov, on which he made his first circumnavigation of the globe, with a stop in Russian America. In 1828–1829, Hagemeister made his second circumnavigation on the ship Krotky. During this journey, he surveyed the Menshikov Atoll (Kwajalein) in the Marshall Islands, plotting it on the map and specifying the location of some other islands.

An island and a strait in Alaska bear Hagemeister's name.

Famous quotes containing the word von:

    When women reach the age of maturity, Mother Nature sometimes overworks their frustration to the point of irrationalism. Like the middle-aged man...who finds himself looking longingly at a girl in her early twenties.
