  1. Good afternoon,
    I am writing on behalf of Adam Mickiewicz Institute in Poland. We launched a number of projects for 2018, among other we would like to create a reportage about the Belgica Expedition (1897-1899).
    Frederick Albert Cook took during that expedition photos of Antarctica’s nature as well as his companions during this exploration.
    I would like to ask whether Frederic Albert Cook Society’s resources contain digitalised pictures of this exhibition, which we could use on a web page and in a movie.

    Kind regards,
