Douglas Mawson Photographic Collection 1908-09
British Antarctic Expedition Photographic Collection 1907-09
A collection of photographs taken by Douglas Mawson (1182-1958) during the British Antarctic Expedition 1907-09. Mawson undertook a considerable amount of the photographic work, including developing and printing, in addition to his work as Physicist. Attribution of the approximately 1,000 images cannot always be given to Mawson, with the Expedition's Newman & Guardia cameras being used by several members.
There has been some doubt about the provenance of the BAE photographs, the certainty of those by Mawson depends on either their subject matter, and/or if the South Austalian Museum holds the negative.
