VILHJALMUR STEFANSSON
Vilhjalmur Stefansson writes a letter of thanks and encouragement.
Autograph Letter Signed: "V. Stefansson", 1p, 8½x11. New York, 1937 January 20. To Mrs. Kolbe. In full: "You are as kind as your husband, whose letter came by an earlier mail today and was answered then. I feel the Dada is among the poorest of several bad pieces in the book. So I hope you persist and find some that are better. As Philadelphians (for a reason which will appear), you may find a special interest in Olof Krarer." OLOF KRARER was an Icelandic woman who immigrated to America in 1876 and became a very successful Eskimo imposter and a highly respected authority on Eskimo culture, giving lectures at major American universities. Born on the Isle of Man, STEFANSSON lived among the Eskimo (1906-1907), learning their language and culture. He carried out ethnographical and zoological studies among the Mackenzie and Copper Eskimo (1908-1912). From 1913-1918 Stefansson, known for his lengthy expeditions on which he subsisted largely on local resources, was in command of an expedition to explore Canadian and Alaskan regions of the Arctic. His polar artifacts are now housed in the Stefansson Collection at Dartmouth College, where he served as a curator in his later years. Lightly creased. Minor stains. Folds touch signature. Overall, fine condition.
