Arctic Institute of North America Photographic Archives
The Arctic Institute’s photographic collection consists of over 4000 photographs dating from the late 1800s through the 1900s. Consisting mostly of black and white prints, but also some negatives and slides, the bulk of the collection dates to the first half of the 20th century. The photos were taken on a variety of expeditions and patrols by scientists, mountaineers, police and military patrols, and other Arctic explorers.

The collection is particularly valued for its insights into history, culture, and science. Much of the content includes an emphasis on Inuit cultural life and various scientific themes such as geology, glaciology, archaeology, and oil and gas exploration. Some of AINA’s larger collections include those from D.A. Nichols, Patrick D. Baird, M.H.W. Ritchie, Colonel Walter A. Wood, Henry Larsen, and Margaret Oldenburg. The collection has been professionally archived and is now available online.
