Biographical/Historical note:
For more than 50 years and on more than 40 expeditions, Captain Robert "Bob" Bartlett sailed, explored, and mapped the Arctic. During the Great Depression, in order to finance his cruises, Bartlett frequently collaborated with scientific institutions, including with the Museum of the American Indian for the 1930 Bartlett East Greenland Expedition. Led by Bartlett and financed by Museum trustee James B. Ford (1844-1928) for the Museum, the expedition allowed anthropologist Junius Bird (1907-1982) to conduct archaeological excavations of Eskimo ruins on Shannon Island and Clavering Island. Co-authored by Bartlett and Bird, "The Bartlett East Greenland Expedition" appeared in the July 1931 issue of Geographical review.
Provenance:
Most of the photographs were part of the field collection received by the Museum of the American Indian, Heye Foundation in 1930. It is unlear when the two portraits of Bartlett arrived at the museum, it was likely around the same time.
