Artungeler Artungelar delivered a request to the ships from Norwegian Roald Amundsen for sled dogs in March 1905. Amundsen was wintering aboard the Gjøa on King William Island north of Hudson Bay. He was conducting studies on the Magnetic North Pole, during his three year voyage through the Northwest Passage. Artungelar returned to Amundsen on March 26, 1905, with dogs, letters, and newspapers from Moodie, Comer and Bernier. Artungelar shattered his right hand on the way to Fullerton, yet made the return trip in half the time of his trip to Fullerton, arriving at King William Island on May 20, 1905. [LAC, C-000685]
