Miriam MacMillan at the wheel, Northwest Greenland, 1948

Contributed by Peary-MacMillan Arctic Museum and Arctic Studies Center

Miriam Look married Donald MacMillan in 1935, and soon became a member of the schooner Bowdoin's crew. She joined all their voyages, contributing her seamanship, photography, film and sound recording skills. A camera tripod is visible at right.

In this view of Miriam MacMillan at the wheel, the schooner is moored with her stern up against a small iceberg near the shoreline.
