In the summer of 1913, Donald B. MacMillan and six other men set off on an expedition to conduct research and exploration in the far north. Marking the 100th anniversary of this major expedition, this exhibit will highlight the results of their extensive fieldwork, and look at the field studies being conducted by contemporary researchers in the same region. Follow our progress as we develop this exhibit on our blog.
