A small collection of papers, photographs and sound recordings documenting the experiences of Edward Sheldon Barr, a crew
member who participated in the MidPac Expedition of 1950 and the Capricorn Expedition of 1952.
Edward Sheldon Barr (b. 1933) voyaged with the 1950 MidPac Expedition as a seventeen year-old high school junior from Point
Loma High School. In the spring of 1950, he inquired at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography and met with Roger Revelle
regarding potential summer employment, and was able to secure a position as a laboratory helper for the upcoming SIO expedition.
Two years later, Barr accompanied the 1952 Capricorn Expedition while he was enrolled as an undergraduate at Stanford University.
Over the course of each expedition, Barr maintained detailed personal diaries and took many photographs.
