Alone, by Admiral Richard Byrd

August 7-10 2022 I am doing research about Richard Byrd’s “Alone,” an autoriographical novel about his second expedition to Antarctica and his time alone in a tiny shack over the winter darkness. I am going to do primary research about this 2nd expedition at at the vast and astonishingly interesting Byrd Polar and Climate Research Center Archive, The Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio. This archive has ast resources pertaining to Antarctica and Byrd, absolutely a wonderful collection for research. I will be gathering and considering many useful first-person resources about Byrd’s work and that will be integrated within the screenplay that I am writing about Alone.

Thank you to Laura Kissel, Polar Curator, University Libraries (the greatest Curator in the world!).
