J. Kenneth Doutt (nicknamed “K”) spent 46 years at Carnegie Museum of Natural History, of which 34 years were served as the head of the Section of Mammals. In only six expeditions to the Far North, he added over 50,000 specimens to the museum’s collections. Thanks to his knowledge of native languages, Doutt was asked by the U.S. Army to put together a list of Eskimo words for use as code during World War II. The excerpts on these pages come from two trips: to Lower Seal Lake with Arthur Twomey in 1938, and to the Baffin Islands with George Wyckoff, Jr., in 1972, Doutt's final trip to the Arctic.
