This painted silhouette of Captain Samuel Hadlock Jr. (1792-ca. 1830) of Great Cranberry Island was made while Hadlock toured Europe.

He traveled with four Inuit Indians, 10 sled dogs, and exotic Arctic and Native American artifacts.

Hadlock built the Preble House on Great Cranberry Island upon his return to Maine with his second wife and child in 1827, and died at sea three years later.
