Diamond Jenness, Expedition Anthropologist, acquired significant collections of
ancient artifacts from archaeological sites at Nome and Barter Island, Alaska,
and at Young Point on Amundsen Gulf. Other smaller collections were purchased
from Point Barrow and Point Hope, Alaska. A few other objects were collected at
various sites by other Expedition members, e.g. Hadley collected artifacts from
a site at Booth Island when the Polar Bear stopped there in 1916 or 1917.
