Polar Pathways: Robert E. Peary's Arctic Expeditions



This project was made possible by two gifts of the Gibbons Informational Technology Summer Fellowship and the Peary-MacMillan Arctic Museum’s Russell and Janet Doubleday Endowment. The Gibbons Fellowship, provided by John A. Gibbons Jr., Class of 1964, allows students and faculty to explore together new tecnological approaches to a given field. Zoe Eddy (Class of 2010) researched the texts, compiled the routes, and designed and created the exhibit. Additionally, David Willner (Class of 2006) initiated the first steps of the project. David N. Israel, Jennifer Snow, and Bill York of Bowdoin Information Technology developed technology aspects of the project and were of invaluable help. Peary-MacMillan Museum volunteer Mildred Jones also provided much needed guidance. Additionally, many members of the Bowdoin community helped with the completion of the exhibit.
