Abstract:

Records of the Crocker Land Expedition led by Donald B. MacMillan relate primarily to its funding through subscription, and to planning various aspects of the expedition; many of the records were prepared by expedition administrator, Edmund O. Hovey. Also, requisitions for supplies and other financial records. Collection includes correspondence written from Greenland and elsewhere between Hovey and Elmer Ekblaw, two members of the expedition party to Knud Rasmussen and Peter Freuchen, who assisted the expedition. Of special interest are duplicates of the journal written by Hovey, leader of the Relief Party, and a summary of the expedition describing their experiences, observations, and ways of coping with difficulties, 1913-1917.
