|Title||Arctic explorer Captain Robert H. Bartlett on deck of ship, probably in Seattle, 1928 |
|Caption||One of Canada's seafaring heroes, Captain Robert H. 'Bob' Bartlett conducted more than 40 voyages in the far North and sailed over 200, 000 miles in Arctic waters. Bartlett navigated the ship 'Roosevelt' around 133 miles of the pole to participate in Peary's successful attempt to reach the North Pole. Crucial to many arctic endeavors, Bartlett is well-known for his rescue undertakings when the 'Karluk' was crushed in the Arctic ice in 1913.|
This 1928 photograph of Bartlett on the deck of a ship is from later in his legendary career.
