Abstract:

The James T. White diaries, which document his voyages as a ship's surgeon with the United States Revenue Cutter Service (USRCS) on the Bering Sea Patrol during the late nineteenth century, contain significant material relating to general maritime history, the origins of the United States Coast Guard (USCG), and the indigenous peoples of the Arctic regions, Bering Sea, and Siberia.

The majority of the manuscript entries contained in these four volumes describe operations on the USRCS cutter, Bear, although there also may be some sections pertaining to the USRCS cutter, Corwin. The 1889 volume presents White's view of Captain Michael A. Healy, a notorious USRCS commander, and includes material that supports both sides of the issue involved in a 1890 court-martial hearing against Healy. The diaries also contain extensive descriptions of the natives of Alaska, especially those of the Bering Sea region and above the Bering Strait, as well as the Chukchi of Siberia. Also included is an account of an 1894 mission to purchase reindeer in Siberia for export to Alaska. The 1894 journal appears to contain observations on the Bering Sea controversy (an incident in which Great Britain and the United States almost went to war over sealing).
