Heiress turns North. There seems to be a lot unsaid about Louise Arner Boyd, but then, there’s a lot unsaid about most people. She was raised in wealth, but never married and seems to have been little involved with the business she had inherited. She sponsored and participated in multiple expeditions to the fjord region of Greenland throughout the 20’s and 30’s. During these she took thousands of feet of movies, mainly continuous shots of the seacoast from the passing ship.
Also around this time, half of a great Italian armada is crossing the North Atlantic on its way to the Chicago World’s Fair. Wait until you get a load of these aircraft.

Northern exposure today, here.
