Wilcox Photo Album
Shown here are nine photos from an expedition sponsored by George Palmer Putnam in 1926 to Greenland for the American Museum of Natural History and the University of Michigan. On this voyage Donald Bartlett Wilcox, born in Brigus, NF in 1904, sailed as cook's assistant and deckhand.
Interestingly, Reginald, Donald's brother, worked for Pathe News Service and sailed with Capt. Bob on numerous trips. The Pathe News Reels preceeded the feature films in movie houses across the country in the 1930s and 40s.
