Robert Edwin Peary (May 6, 1856 – February 20, 1920) was an American explorer who claimed to have been the first person, on April 6, 1909, to reach the geographic North Pole. Peary's claim was widely credited for most of the 20th century, though it was criticized even in its own day and is today widely doubted.

Robert Edwin Peary was born in Cresson, Pennsylvania in 1856. Peary graduated from Bowdoin College in 1877. His home in Fryeburg, Maine still remains in pristine condition as an inn known as the Admiral Peary House.

Peary was a brother of the Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity (Theta chapter).
