Resources: The Peary-MacMillan Arctic Museum on Tumblr

The Peary-MacMillan Arctic Museum at Bowdoin College has been on Tumblr for a number of months now. Its staff regularly uploads new content relating to the museum, its collections, and its activities. Among the people who show up are Peary and MacMillan (obviously), but also others like W. Elmer Ekblaw, one of the members of the 1913-1917 Crocker Land Expedition. Vilhjalmur Stefansson would later use Ekblaw’s 1920 article “A Recent Eskimo Migration and its Forerunner” to help fabricate a (non-existent) Danish threat to Canadian arctic sovereignty.
