Other Polar Collections

In addition to the major collections held by the Polar Archival Program (The Papers of Admiral Richard E. Byrd, The Papers of Sir George Hubert Wilkins, The Frederick A. Cook Society Collection and the Polar Oral History Program) the Polar Archival Program also maintains numerous other smaller collections related to polar history. For example, one significant collection is the records of the American Polar Society. Founded in 1935 and guided by August Howard for many years, the Society continues to foster interest and provide information about polar regions, especially through its publication, The Polar Times. Additionally, the Polar Archival Program maintains the following collections, which deal with both polar exploration and scientific study, and are available to researchers. If you wish to use any of these collections, please contact the Polar curator with your request.
