Biographical/Historical Note

Miriam Look was born in Clinton, Massachusetts, in 1905, a daughter of Moses Jerome Look, a civil engineer, and his second wife, Amy G. Wood Look. In 1935, Miriam married Donald B. MacMillan (Bowdoin 1898), a friend of her father. The marriage was a childless one, but the MacMillans helped raise Helga Knudsen, the daughter of their friend Aage Knudsen.

Miriam MacMillan was the Curator of the Peary-MacMillan Arctic Museum at Bowdoin College (1970-1973), Associate Curator (1973-1987); and received honorary degrees from Nasson College (1960) and from Bowdoin (1980).

After the death of her husband in 1970, Mrs. MacMillan moved to Owl's Head, Maine, to live with her friends, Dr. and Mrs. Edward Morse. She died in 1987.


Scope and Content

The collection consists of materials concerning Miriam and Donald MacMillan acquired from Miriam's estate, including their personal correspondence. Items pertaining to Donald MacMillan include correspondence, journals and diaries relating to the North Pole (1908-1909) and Crocker Land expeditions (1913-1917), manuscript drafts, and lecture schedules. Miriam MacMillan's materials include correspondence, manuscript drafts, notebooks and diaries kept during her Arctic voyages, and scrapbooks chronicling her husband's achievements. Also included are materials concerning the schooner Bowdoin.
