Abstract:

The album consists of sixteen photographs, one letter, and one essay mounted on hand made paper and bound inside leather covers. The album also contains an insert of treated airplane linen, possibly from one of Amundsen's aircraft. Some of the photographs are accompanied by captions typed on separate pieces of paper and glued into the album. The photographs, several of which were taken by the Lomen Bros. studio, are dated between 1906 and 1929. These items chiefly consist of portraits of polar explorer Roald Amundsen, as well as images of the airship Norge (with which Amundsen flew over the North Pole on his way from Svalbard to Alaska in 1926) and the sailing ships, Gjoa (with which Amundsen became the first man to sail through the Northwest Passage), and the Maud, in locations in Alaska (mainly Nome). Some of the images of Amundsen are group portraits with members of the Lomen family. Also included is a letter from Amundsen to "Consul Lomen" (probably Judge G.J. Lomen) and an essay by 16-year-old Rose Mary Lomen. The album also contains one photograph of Arctic explorer Vilhjalmur Stefansson, autographed to Beals and his wife. The last page of the album bears the inscription "Gualterus fecit Anno XLIII;" the probable date of the album's completion (1943).
