Abstract:

The collection contains 282 glass plate negatives documenting arctic exploration and Inuit culture in the early 20th century.

Most images relate to the U.S. Canadian Scientific Expedition (1908-1912) and the Canadian Arctic Expedition (1913-1918). Included are images of flora and fauna, earthen and snow covered landscapes, ice formations, and indigenous housing, clothing and body marking, and hunting and fishing practices. Within the collection are two sequential sets, showing the construction of an ice house (igloo) and the conversion of a sledge to a sled-boat. Images of native cultures are contrasted with those of early to mid-20th century industry including hydraulic mining, logging, reindeer herding, and agriculture. Included are images of Hudson's Bay Company and Eldorado Mining and Refining Limited holdings.

Ships shown include the Bear, Corwin, and North Star. Individual and group shots of scientists, "Copper Eskimos," and Inuit peoples include images of Charles D. Brower, Fritz Johansen, Charles Klinkenberg, Vilhjalmur Stefansson, and Storker Theodor Storkerson. Illustrated locations in Alaska include Collinson Point, Flaxman Island, Fort Yukon, and Tanana; in the Northwest Territories, Bernard Harbor, Cape Bathurst, and Victoria Island; in the Yukon, Herschel Island; in Greenland, archaeological digs at Osterbygd. Also included are images of Stefansson's 1923-24 trip to Australia and many aerial photographs. Principal photographers are George Hubert Wilkins and the Lomen Bros.
