MARIE AHNIGHITO PEARY The "Snow Baby" and daughter of Rear Admiral Robert Peary signed this First Day Cover honoring her father's polar adventure Autograph Letter Signed: "Marie Peary Stafford" on a 7¾x5 piece of note paper (unfolded). Three sides written on. Dated June 14, 1955. In Part: "It was wonderfully / kind and thoughtful / of you to send me your / sympathy on the death / of my husband and / to write so glowingly / of my talk before the / National Geographic / Society". Marie Ahnighito Peary Stafford (1893-1978) became known worldwide as the "Snow Baby", a name given to her by the Greenland natives who had never seen a white baby before. Her middle name, Ahnighito, is in honor of an Inuit woman who made the days-old child her first fur coat. Marie returned to the Arctic as an adult in 1932 to dedicate a monument honoring her father. Fine condition.
