Arctic Museum to Release MacMillan Lecture DVD

The Far North

“MacMillan is coming!” More than 50 years ago these words announced an exciting event in communities across the country: famed Arctic explorer Donald B. MacMillan would be in town with his motion pictures to tell eager audiences about his latest exploits.

Now people can relive this experience in a new DVD to be released by The Peary-MacMillan Arctic Museum in January 2011. The Far North recreates a lecture given by MacMillan in Boothbay Harbor, Maine, in 1959.
