The boys in the rigging are most likely the youngest members of the crew that went on the MacMillan Expedition of 1926, Kennett Rawson, 15, son of Frederick H. Rawson, a Chicago banker and sponsor or the expedition; and Joseph N. Field, 14, son of Stanley Field, head of the Field Museum in Chicago.
One of the purposes of the trip was to collect specimens for the Field Museum in Chicago.
