Putting (educated) meat on the table - Alaska 1914
« on: May 27, 2017, 08:35:51 pm »
The Bear is on a government reindeer herd inspection run during late July 1914, a serious matter for feeding the Inuit. However the following entry from 28th July 1914



'6.15 Launch left vessel for Reindeer Camp at Immaruck [modern day Imuruk] Basin, so that government herd can be inspected by Mr. Shields, Supt. of Schools'

gave me an amusing idea...

Very clever!  Perhaps there was a dearth of schools to inspect and they were trying to keep Mr Shields occupied?
