The success of the Canadian Arctic Expedition
depended very much on the men and women who were hired by Stefansson,
Anderson and other members of the CAE. This section provides a
glimpse into the lives of those who worked for the Expedition.
Information is given on their role and achievements while with
the CAE, and where possible, on their earlier life and what happened
to them after the Expedition.
The people of the CAE are here organized under
three main groups: The Northern Party,
The Southern Party, and The
Karluk. Within these three groups, the people are listed
under: Leader, Scientists, Captains and crews, and Local assistants.
There is a particular focus on the people of the north who served
with the Northern and Southern Parties.
