MacMillan (1874-1970) was an American explorer, sailer, researcher, and lecturer who made over 30 expeditions to the Arctic, pioneering the use of radios, airplanes, and electricity in the Arctic. In 1923-24 he led a National Geographic Expedition in the schooner Bowdoin to Smith Sound on the northwest coast of Greenland to observe magnetic fields and atmospheric electricity. They spent the winter in Refuge Harbor just north of Etah. This is his account of that expedition. Very scarce with the dust jacket.

Not in Arctic Bibliography.
