The American Museum of Natural History
In 1913, Museum researcher Roy Chapman Andrews set off on the Borden Alaska Expedition aboard the sleek new schooner Adventuress. Hoping to collect a bowhead whale, Andrews did not reach his goal; yet the story of the planning for the trip and the journey itself paint a fascinating picture of the Museum and its efforts 100 years ago. Join Tom Baione, Boeschenstein Director of Library Services, for a lecture about the expedition, illustrated with photographs and findings from Museum archives.
