Inuit frequently visited the Bowdoin as she made her way around the North, stopping at areas where old friends lived.

This man visited during the 1947 voyage when the schooner anchored at Thule in northwest Greenland. He wears the men's summer clothing traditionally used in that area: a cloth anorak, polar bear pants, and skin boots or kamiks.

Explorer Donald MacMillan had the schooner built for Arctic exploration.
