Noted Voyager Will Pilot Expedition for New York Museum
Middletown, Conn., April 3.–Captain George Comer, of East Haddam, a noted Arctic voyager, is arranging for a 16-month cruise to Repulse Bay, the head of navigation on Hudson Bay, in the interest of the Museum of Natural History, of New York City. The expedition is to be financed by Lincoln Ellsworth, a wealthy New York man.
Mr. Ellsworth’s son probably will sail with Captain Comer.
The museum will send four experts with the expedition, comprising a zoologist, a geologist, an ethnologist and an anthropologist. Captain Comer has made a number of trips to the Arctic region. Several of them have been with Anthony Fiala, explorer. The start will probably be made from New London, Conn.
