August 16, 1943 – Merton’s War Diary

August 16, 1943
Dower arrived with supplies and mail. Eskimos from village over mountain around camp all the time.

The Dower must have been another one of the ships and it looks like Cape Dan is at the southern most part of the island.  It is possible that these Eskimo’s are from the village of Kulusk itself.  I am still looking for a weather station there and when I find it you’ll be sure to know.

In 1943 and 1944,  my Grandfather Merton Young traveled to Greenland while working for the Merritt-Chapman & Scott Company.  He wrote a brief diary of his journey and this is a piece of that story.
