Arctic Explorer

The Register-Leader, November 13, 1916

Sunday's Columbus Dispatch carries an excellent likeness of Frederick W. Maurer, Marietta College student and lone American survivor of the Stefansson expedition. 

In connection with the photograph, the Dispatch says:

"Frederick W. Maurer, scientist and arctic explorer, only American survivor of the Stefansson Arctic expedition, has given up bucking the Arctic ice for the equally hazardous task of "bucking the line" at Marietta College, Marietta, Ohio. Maurer was among the promising candidates who reported to Coach Drumm at training camp this fall. With a year of experience, it is believed that Maurer will become a valuable member of the Buckeye eleven."
