ABSTRACT
The article discusses the story of the first Canadian Arctic Expedition (CAE) in 1913, which marked a critical moment in the exploration of Canada's North, although many Canadians still consider the CAE a largely unknown part of Canada's scientific, geographic and historical heritage. Archival photographs and films can still be viewed online, although the Canadian Museum of Civilization's year-long exhibition on the CAE ended in April 2012.
