Robert E. Peary and His Northern World
April 5, 2012 - December 31, 2014
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 hi 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 exhibition provides new perspectives on Peary and his long career in the north.
