Robert (Bob) Dinsmore was involved in the International Ice Patrol and provided some of these materials. The (20) lantern slides were given to the WHOI Archives by the widow of MBL scientist (?). This scientist took these pictures aboard the first INP in 1914. The instruments shown being used on the ships are Bigelow water bottles, some of which are now in the WHOI Archives Instrument Collection.
