Matthew Williams Stirling was a Smithsonian ethnologist and archeologist who spent the early part of his career conducting research in New Guinea and Ecuador. Edward A. Salisbury was a wealthy filmmaker who sailed around the South Pacific for documentary footage in the 1920s. And Cyril von Baumann was an explorer, naturalist, and archeologist.
