Machan, Elmar [Elma]. “The Northland Regales.” Christian Science Monitor (Boston) 12.42.

Elma Machan’s daughter, Vivian Moreau, has sent us a number of her mother’s published pieces, but many of them are from old, tattered copies of magazines and thus missing essential parts of the stories. There is a particularly interesting article in the Christian Science Monitor about the departure of a polar expedition, “Roof of the World: Research Party Leaving Churchill by Snowmobile February 14 to Study Frozen Northland,” but that is missing the bottom of the first page. This story of the Northland, however, we have in its entirety. So here is a lovely tale to share on Christmas Eve.
