Abstract:

This collection contains many types of material: correspondence; letterbook; sketches of arctic and other scenes (there are many sketches scattered throughout the numerous bound volumes); notebooks of polar exploration; medical notebooks; journals of trips to North Carolina, Philippines, Africa, Asia Minor, Egypt, Mexico; logbooks; lectures; lecture notebooks on medicine, geology, mineralogy, geometry, etc.; medical notebook; and a journal kept while a resident physician at Blockley Hospital, Philadelphia.

There is much miscellaneous material concerning his arctic explorations (notes, copies of journal entries, drafts of material unpublished and published, lists of material and books, bills and receipts, etc.). The correspondence is concentrated in the 1840s and 1850s when he began his worldwide travels; much relates to his arctic voyages in search of Sir John Franklin in the 1850s. There is considerable correspondence with Margaret Fox and with others relating to Kane's relationship with her and the later controversy.

There are numerous letters (ca. 150) expressing condolences on his death. These and letters dated post-1857 are to family members.
