Stowed Away: A Traveling Philographist and
his Arctic Uke
through March 20
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.
