[Volume 1] Arctic explorations : the second Grinnell Expedition in search of Sir John Franklin, 1853, '54, '55


Date: 1856



Elisha Kent Kane was a famous Arctic explorer. He graduated in the medical department of the University of Pennsylvania in 1842, and entered the United States navy as a surgeon in the following year. He commenced his career as an Arctic explorer in 1850 by accompanying the Grinnell expedition in search of the lost British explorer Sir John Franklin.

In 1853 he was made commander of a second expedition for the same purpose. The object of this expedition was never attained; and, after undergoing the greatest hardships and privation during two winters, it was finally resolved to abandon the ship and return home. Kane reached Philadelphia in October, 1855, and soon after published a narrative of the expedition.
