Summary
Investigates questions of possible Navy officer misconduct during the 1879-1881 Arctic Expedition of the steamer Jeannette, which became icebound and sank, leaving most of its survivors to die while searching for help in Siberia. Testimony largely centers on the alleged mistreatment and death of Jerome J. Collins, a meteorologist and news correspondent for the New York Herald who accompanied the expedition. a. Collins, Jerome J., expedition journal excerpts (p. 841-953). b. Arnoux, William H., arguments on behalf of Navy officers and other respondents, May 17, 1884 (p. 955-997). c. Curtis, George M., arguments on behalf of Daniel F. Collins, petitioner, May 19, 1884 (p. 999-1043). Also considers adequacy of the prior investigation conducted by a naval court of inquiry, which found no misconduct in the Jeannette disaster, especially by Navy officers George W. De Long and George W. Melville. Includes the following documents.
