    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Minek and his relations were brought to New York City at the request of anthropologist Franz Boaz. Though progressive for his time, Boaz housed the Inuit in the basement of the American Museum of Natural History and had Minek's father's skeleton cleaned and catalogued after he died of a respiratory disease.

      • Bruce Henderson (writer): (on Peary's use of the Eskimos to help him reach the North Pole) Until the White men came looking for the Pole, the Eskimos didn't care at all for the Pole. And why should they?
