FAQ and Contacts

What is in the McGoldrick Photographs collection?

The photographs in the McGoldrick Collection were taken in the summer of 1886 by Charles D. Kennedy, a 3rd Lieutenant on the U.S. Revenue Cutter Bear. Composed of shots that document their cruise, the collection contains a variety of subjects, people, and locations. They describe the diversity that the sailors on the ships experienced along the coast of Alaska and Russian Siberia. The images show the balance of the Russian presence among the native culture, and demonstrate the interaction between the sailors and the natives, as well as the other ships they came in contact with. These images became the foundation for the publication Steaming to the North by former Plymouth State faculty members Katherine Donahue and the late David Switzer, which documents the voyage of the Bear, and the experiences these photographs depict.
