These photographs were taken from the 1880s to 1890s. The collection provides insight into the people and events the "Bear" and "Corwin" encountered on their voyages while under the command of Healy. The collection also depicts Alaskan native graves; missionaries; whaling ships; ice fields in the Arctic Ocean; J.B. Vincent, a survivor of the shipwrecked "Napoleon"; Francis "Frank" Fuller, murderer of Archbishop Charles John Seghers; Alaskan native umiaks and various artifacts; and reindeer stations.
