"My 50 Years in Antarctica" by Dr. Laurence M. Gould, 1979

This is a recording of an Antarctican Society Memorial Lecture given by Dr. Laurence Gould on April 19, 1979 in Washington, D.C. It is a rich and humorous account of Dr. Gould's long and illustrious involvement in Antarctic science and diplomacy, beginning with his role as second in command on the first Byrd expedition in 1928-30 (BAE I) and concluding with his pivotal role in coordinating the development of the historic Antarctic Treaty. Included in the introduction are remarks by Dr. Paul C. Dalrymple, Father Ramsey Kendall and Dr. Jim Zumberge. Father Kendall was once a neighbor of Sir Earnest Shackleton and he recounts his memories of Shackleton. This is one of the best of the Memorial Lectures.
