George W. Wyckoff, Jr. was a young and very active member of the Board of Carnegie Institute. While not a scientist, in 1972 he committed to creating a photographic record of the native Inuit hunting methods of early spring on Baffin Island. Wyckoff died only a few years later at the age of 40, and the Museum’s new polar exhibition was named Wyckoff Hall of Arctic Life in his honor. His photographs provide an invaluable record of the practices surrounding not only the hunt, but the community activities that accompanied the hunting process.
