17th June - Off Nome
Quote
At 11:40 Captain Roald Amundsen, the noted explorer, called on Commanding Officer

21st June - Nome
Quote
8:00 Norwegian gas schooner MAUD stood in to anchorage.
At 8:30 sent boarding officer to board MAUD of Christiania, O.Wisting, master, Seattle to Arctic.

From Wiki Maud was Amundsen's ship and was going to attempt to drift over the North Pole in the ice (sounds familiar  ;) )
