Polar Bear Expedition Digital Materials


The American military intervention at Archangel, Russia, at the end of World War I, nicknamed the "Polar Bear Expedition," is a strange episode in American history. Ostensibly sent to Russia to prevent a German advance and to help reopen the Eastern Front, American soldiers found themselves fighting Bolshevik revolutionaries for months after the Armistice ended fighting in France. This collection contains digitized manuscripts and photographs as well as maps and primary printed source materials relating to the Polar Bear Expedition.
