Peary-MacMillan Arctic Museum:
Dogs at Work in the North
Bowdoin College, in Brunswick, Maine USA, is home to the Peary-MacMillan Arctic Museum. According to the museum’s website, it is “…dedicated entirely to all things Arctic. It is named after Arctic explorers and Bowdoin graduates Robert E. Peary (Class of 1877) and Donald B. MacMillan (Class of 1898).” There is a wealth of polar resources on this site. Dogs at Work in the North was an active exhibit on display from January 22 through April 21, 2019. It is now archived here.
