Professor Edward Travers CBE was a British anthropologist and explorer.
In 1935, Travers set out on an expedition to Tibet to find the Yeti. At first suspicious of the Second Doctor, he eventually aided him in defeating the Great Intelligence. (TV: The Abominable Snowmen)
Travers brought back one of the robot Yeti used by the Intelligence, but money problems eventually forced him to sell it to Julius Silverstein for his private museum. Travers later married and had a daughter, Anne. (TV: The Web of Fear)
Travers eventually succeeded in reactivating one of the Yeti's control spheres, which led to the Intelligence attacking London. He and Anne assisted the Doctor and the army task force led by Colonel Lethbridge-Stewart in defeating the Intelligence once more. (TV: The Web of Fear)
