  1. Finn Ronne and Edith M. Ronne map collection, 1930-1994

    56 maps, 1 unbound volume. -- Geography and Map Division, Library of Congress, Washington, D.C.


    The Finn Ronne and Edith M. Ronne map collection contains 56 maps and 1 unbound volume, each related to the Ronnes' exploratory expeditions to the Antarctic continent. The maps were used in a variety of scenarios, including as plans for upcoming expeditions, summaries of completed journeys, charting territories and geographic features, and identifying areas recently mapped by the Ronnes or other explorers. Many maps contain annotations. The maps predominantly concern Finn Ronne's four major Antarctic journeys: the Byrd Antarctic Expedition II (1933-1935), the United States Antarctic Service Expedition (1939-1941), the Ronne Antarctic Research Expedition "R.A.R.E." (1946-1948), and Operation Deep Freeze during the International Geophysical Year (1957-1958).
