dc.description.abstractAmong the massive--more than five hundred cubic feet--of documentation of the career of polar explorer Richard E. Byrd is one particularly extra-ordinary box that has never been used by any researcher. It contains essays submitted in a contest sponsored by Byrd's publisher G.P. Putnam's Son's, who challenged contestants to write on the theme of "The Value, to the Civilized World, of The Byrd Antarctic Expedition." This paper has five parts: The Challenge to Scholarship; The Contest; The Methodology of the Study; The Results of the Study; and The Conclusions.en_US
