Internally clean, occasional fingerprints, text entirely legible, written in Wiseman’s schoolboy-like cursive. Early ownership bookplate of “The Hazeltons” on front pastedown. Entered in pencil in Wiseman’s hand on front blank: “Personal Dairy (sic) of / J. M. Wiseman / fireman of S.S. Roosevelt.” The diary is an unpublished account containing significant information, unknown to scholarship, relating to Robert Peary’s final polar expedition. Wiseman joined the expedition in St. John’s, Newfoundland, the crew traveled to New York where they met the S.S. Roosevelt. The ship traveled up the east coast of North America stopping in Oyster Bay to meet President Roosevelt and making stops in ports such as New Bedford, North Sydney, Cape Charles, Hawkes Harbour, Cape York, and Etah, among others. Wiseman’s role in the crew was that of a fireman, working below deck shoveling coal and maintaining the ship’s engines. He also made garments for the Commander (Peary) and, “he [Peary] was pleased with them.” He aided in the scholarly research of the expedition by assisting Professor Ross G. Martin in making tidal observations. Martin was killed during the expedition when he drowned after falling through the ice. Entries detail exploration of Greenland, hunting expeditions, Inuit life (called by


Wiseman ‘huskys’), and the death of Martin. One particularly fascinating entry recounts the hunting of a “norwhale (sp)” that when brought aboard was found to be, “16 feet long and had a horn 6 feet long.” Of interesting note, Wiseman writes on September 7th 1909, “we heard that the Commander had a telegram telling him that Dr Cook found the North Pole well we all took a smile at that we think the Commander will fix him when he gets home.” $3,000-5,000 36 (History of Medicine) 1 Vol. Beaumont, William.
