Captain Donald MacMillan, holding a sled dog puppy, and some of his crew were photographed on the deck of the schooner Bowdoin, upon their return home in 1922. The Bowdoin was a research vessel specially designed by MacMillan for sailing the arctic. This trip had been the Bowdoin's first voyage. Just right of MacMillan, holding a cigar, was that voyage's ship engineer, Harold Whitehouse. Whitehouse had also been the engine man at Hodgdon Brothers shipyard, where the Bowdoin was built from 1920-1921.
