Carey, Arthur Douglas (1936)

Britský úředník v Indii a cestovatel. Arthur Douglas Carey passed into the Indian Civil Service in 1864; serving in the Bombay Presidency; became interested in Central Asia and planned an excursion to Northern Tibet which came to fruition in 1885. Much of the route had not been travelled by Europeans and consequently a great deal of information concerning areas such as the Tarim basin was collected. Carey received the RGS's Founder's Medal (RGS = Royal Geographical Society) for this journey in 1889; retired from the Indian Civil Service in 1893, spending the remainder of his life in Switzerland until he died in 1936.

Vedl výpravu do Tibetu v roce 1885, jeho společníkem byl A. Dalgleish.
