Flag Reaches the North Pole, The

“Peary brought this silk flag, handmade by his wife, on each of his many expeditions in search of the North Pole. On every unsuccessful attempt, he cut a small square from the flag, secreted it in a jar, and buried it at the northernmost point. Finally, on his sixth try, he reached his goal; there he cut a three-inch diagonal swath from the flag. The white patches used to replace the missing pieces are visible in this picture.”
