You win the famous Nicaraguan change-wallet made from a frogs head, coveted by many all over the World! and as a bonus you get the link to the Answer!
And the Answer is;
Robert Peary (1856-1920) the Discoverer of the North Pole was the engineer in charge of the Nicaragua Canal Surveys from 1887 to 1888. At that time he was serving in the US Navy as a civil engineer.
While in Nicaragua he invented the rolling lock gates for use in water canals.
The US Navy allowed Peary a leave-of-absence so he could try to reach the North-Pole. After Peary had a number of failed-attempts to reach the North-Pole, Peary finally discovered the North Pole on April 6, 1909.

Very interesting! May WalterG live long and Prosper Na-Noo Na-Noo
Norman but you also have to give credit to Henson being the first black man to participate in such a endeavour.
I didn't know Hendson was with peary in Nicaragua! I found this refreance to Hendson at this web site for the book by Peary's wife, Josephine Peary;
"More significantly she tells of Matthew Henson, who had first served with Lieutenant Peary in Nicaragua (surveying a possible route for a canal), now a trusted and respected assistant to both Pearys. His carpentry skill helps to construct their fortress for winter survival, Redcliff House, as well as the expedition sledges."

Yep, but everyone (on NL at least) knows Santa lives in Esteli.

Something to do with a famous person!
