In recognition of the upcoming 100th anniversary of the University of Illinois' participation in an Arctic expedition, the University Archives has prepared an on-line exhibit featuring first-hand accounts of this ill-fated trip to find the "Crocker Lands". The exhibit focuses on the observations of W. Elmer Ekblaw (class of 1910) who served as the expedition team's geologist, and provides insights to survival in a brutal climate away from the rest of the world that was rushing into World War I.
