Robert E. Peary and His Northern World


  • The Peary-MacMillan Arctic Museum / Bowdoin College 9500 College Station Brunswick, Maine 04011 USA

As a pioneering Arctic explorer, Peary relied on many extraordinary people, including his family, financial backers, loyal expedition members, and the Inughuit men and women of Northwest Greenland. He also worked ceaselessly to improve his methods of travel and his equipment, always keeping in mind efficiency on the trail and the comfort and safety of his men. Through objects, photographs, and motion pictures, this exhibit provides new perspectives on Peary and his long career.  

Funded by the Russell and Janet Doubleday Endowment.
