Description: The lecture films of Admiral Richard E. Byrd from his first expedition to Antarctica arrived with Byrd's papers at The Ohio State University. However, their fragile condition made viewing impossible. A series of grants from the Kane Lodge Foundation, Inc., to OSU's Byrd Polar Research Center Archival Program made possible the cleaning of the original films and the copying to videotape. What you see today is due to the financial support of the Kane Lodge Foundation, Inc. The Byrd Archival Program acknowledges and appreciates this support and the interest and encouragement of the Kane Lodge Foundation, Inc., which is named in honor of another distinguished polar explorer, Dr. Elisha Kent Kane.
