Chief topographer with the CAE Southern Party, Chipman remained
a topographer after the Expedition and for the rest of his career,
first with the Geological Survey of Canada and then with the Topographical
Survey. He and his colleague J.R. Cox published their Expedition
results in a CAE paper on the topography of the Arctic coast west
of the Kent Peninsula. Chipman died in 1974. A point at the mouth
of Bernard Harbour was named for him.
After returning from the Expedition, J.R. Cox continued to lead
a life of adventure. His service in the Canadian army for nearly
two years in France was followed by a stint in India working for
an oil company. He then travelled to Peru, Kenya and Uganda, and
the USA on various business engagements, and finally to Arizona
where he retired. He died in 1977. A small island in the mouth
of Bernard Harbour bears his name.
Cox's daughters donated the camera that he used
during the CAE to the Canada Museum of Science and Technology
New Zealand-born and Oxford-educated, anthropologist Diamond Jenness
(1886-1969) became the foremost Canadian anthropologist, a career
founded on his work with the Canadian Arctic Expedition.
His task on the CAE was to study the little-known
Copper Inuit of the Coronation Gulf region of the Canadian Arctic.
During the first winter of the Expedition he studied the local
languages and excavated archaeological sites in Alaska. From August
1914 Jenness spent two years visiting, trading, travelling and
living with the Copper Inuit. His experiences and gained knowledge
were not only documented in several volumes of Expedition reports,
but also in two still popular books for general readers (The
People of the Twilight and Dawn in Arctic Alaska). Jenness
collected a huge variety of ethnological materials: from clothing
and hunting tools, to stories and games, and sound recordings
of dance songs. On his return from the Expedition, Jenness enlisted
in the Canadian Army and served overseas for two years as a gun
spotter. In the 1920s he published five major reports based on
his anthropological work. During the Second World War he was Deputy-Director
of Intelligence. In his later career he recognized and named the
Dorset and Old Bering Sea Inuit cultures. His studies of Canada's
Native peoples from coast to coast resulted in a major work, The
Indians of Canada.
The name Diamond Jenness is still well-remembered
and well-respected in the Canadian Arctic communities. Elder David
Bernhardt of Kugluktuk remembers how "Patsy Klengenberg talked
a lot about Diamond Jenness, he was the only person Patsy talked
about. He was well-known and well-liked" (Interview, September
2002). The descendants of Jenness' adopted family remain in touch
with Diamond's son Stuart.
In 1991 Stuart Jenness edited and published his
father's extensive and fascinating diary of his time with the
CAE, Arctic Odyssey, The Diary of Diamond Jenness 1913-1916,
complete with additional notes, lists of collections, letters,
people, and photographs.
A large bay near the Richardson Islands, on the south coast of
Victoria Island, carries Johansen's name to honour his CAE work
as a biologist. After the Expedition he worked for the Naval Service
and its successor, the Department of Marine and Fisheries, until
the late 1920s when he returned to Denmark. He died there in 1957.
His published CAE reports are on insect life in the western Arctic,
Arctic vegetation and crustaceans. His manuscript on Arctic fishes
was never published, but has been of great value in the production
of a new work on the fishes of Arctic Canada by the Canadian Museum
J. J. O'Neill
O'Neil, one of the CAE's two geologists, continued to work for
the Geological Survey after returning from the Expedition. His
CAE report on the geology of the Arctic coast of Canada was published
in 1924. He later spent a year in India doing a commercial job,
then returned to Canada and joined the faculty of geological sciences
at McGill University. In 1935 he became Dean of Science and from
1949 until he retired in 1952 he was vice-principal of the University.
O'Neill died in Ottawa in 1966. In 1999, a new mineral species
from Mont Saint-Hilaire was named "oneillite" in honour
of O'Neill's contribution to Canadian geology.
