Box 5: Diary, April 27, 1914 (Canadian Arctic Expedition); folder 2 has inventory of all equipment and supplies that includes “Stork’s books 10 lbs.”
Box 9, folder 22: Wrangel Island Expedition. Milton Galle’s (who died in the expedition) Diary, July-September 1923 in typescript copy:
July 23 – “The Color Line,” William B. Smith, McClure Phillips & Co., $1.50. An odd entry but it appears as if that is a book he had in hand that day. It could either be the day he started reading the book or the day he finished. [The original of this entry is in the next folder (9. 23) and looks like #150 rather than $1.50. Did seem odd for him to give the price—he doesn’t in the other entries—but raises the question of number 150 of what?]
