Abstract

Wellington-born anthropologist, Diamond Jenness (1886-1969) graduated from Victoria University in Wellington before going on to study at Balliol College in Oxford. It was while he was in New Zealand recovering from yellow fever he had contracted on an expedition to Papua New Guinea that he was approached by the National Museum of Canada to join Vilhjalmur Stefansson and the Canadian Arctic Expedition (1913-1918).
