The Arctic collection


Arctic magazine.


The Arctic is the Journal of the Arctic Institute of North America, and is published quarterly by the University of Calgary Press.

The photograph on the cover of the March 1986 issue is of a right whale taken at Akutan whaling station, early 1900s (courtesy W. Lagen) and illustrates an article on the catch records of the Twenty North Pacific Right Whales from two whaling stations by J.J. Brueggeman, T. Newby and R.A. Grotefendt.

Our collection includes Vol. 1 no.1 (loose issue), no.2 (pdf), both 1948, then is complete from 1949 (volume 2), to 1996 (volume 49) in bound volumes (some individual issues); donations of missing volumes would be greatly appreciated.

This is currently (January 2021) a work in progess, to rationalise, facilitate and expand our existing pages at the Naval Marine Archive. Some pages are very recent, some date back twenty years and may or may not have been reviewed and/or edited recently; we appreciate any suggestions for improvements.
