Supplies from the Roosevelt scatter the base of an iceberg between Cape Sheridan and Cape Columbia on Ellesmere Island in Nunavut, Canada. Among the ship's crew and cargo were Matthew Henson, Peary's longtime assistant; 49 Inuit men, women, and children; 246 sled dogs; 70 tons of whale meat; and the blubber of 50 walruses.
