Sailors watching iceberg from 'Bowdoin,' 1947

Contributed by Peary-MacMillan Arctic Museum and Arctic Studies Center

While icebergs are a common sight in northern waters, they never lose their fascination. The crew of the schooner Bowdoin admires a small iceberg from a safe distance during their 1947 voyage to Greenland.

Miriam MacMillan, in her distinctive red hat, can be seen at the stern; she appears to be checking her camera. She was the wife of Donald MacMillan who headed the expedition.
