  • Existence: 1883 - 1940

Storker T. Storkerson was born in 1883 in Norway. He participated in the Anglo-American Expedition, 1906-1907. He also accompanied Stefansson on the Canadian Arctic Expedition, 1913-1918, traveling on the longest sledge journeys. Just like Stefansson, Storkerson was committed to the idea that man could travel and live on the ice without carrying large supplies of food. In the 1920's, Stefansson and Storkerson joined forces once again on the unsuccessful Hudson Bay Reindeer Company. By the 1930's Storkerson had developed mental issues and was place in an asylum in Norway. He died in 1940.
