Captain Roald Amundsen in Eagle, Alaska; 1905.

Image from the Archives Collection

Clarence L. Andrews Collection. Series 1.

The photographer is unknown but the picture was probably taken by C. L. Andrews. The location is Eagle, Alaska. The original identification reads: "Capt. Amundsen at Messhouse; 1905." The original negative is damaged which accounts for the condition of the top of the image.

Reason for Selection: This is a fine view of a relaxed Amundsen at ease in a house in the Alaskan interior. He is on his return trip after completing his voyage through the Northwest Passage. (DFW & JS).
