Stowed Away: A Traveling Philographist and his Arctic Uke
Arctic adventure by visiting the Morris Museum’s current
exhibition, Stowed Away: A Traveling Philographist and
his Arctic Uke. This exhibition explores the story behind the
ukulele that “stowed-away” on Admiral Richard Byrd’s North-Pole
flight of 1926. The ukulele belonged to Richard Konter, a
naval veteran of the Spanish-American War and World War I, who
participated in Byrd expeditions to both the Arctic and Antarctic.
For years after the flight, Konter used this instrument as
an unusual “autograph book,” collecting the signatures of more than
150 individuals—from royalty to presidents, explorers to generals,
scientists to politicians—who added their names to this unique
artifact of Arctic history.
