Ursula B. Marvin - Journal from Polar Duke, 1985

You know what they say: third time’s a charm. But is that saying really relevant if the first two times were successful, too? In 1985, geologist Ursula Marvin made her third and final trip to Antarctica to search for evidence at the Cretaceous-Tertiary boundary of the impact that may have led to the extinction of the dinosaurs 65 million years ago. And as is the case in her field books from 1978 and 1981, she recorded all of the interactions and experiences she had along the way on the journey. After a long day in the field, Marvin lamented about never learning how to dance. On Valentine’s Day, she reflected on “young love” between her coworker and his spouse. And she just really appreciated a good shower.

Ursula B. Marvin - Journal from Antarctica, 1978-1979

Dr. Ursula Marvin was a lot of “firsts.” She was the first woman research assistant in geology at Harvard. She was the first in line to submit her membership fee when the Harvard Geology Club finally allowed women. And she was the first woman on the American Antarctic research team. During her trip to Antarctica in 1978-79, she recorded her journey to hunt for meteorites. Join a group of volunpeers in transcribing Marvin’s notes, which detail not only her field work, but also the meals she ate, worries that kept her awake at night, and how she and her fellow researchers spent the holidays away from home.

Ursula B. Marvin - Journal from Antarctica, 1981-1982

Notable geologists—they’re just like us! During her second trip to Antarctica in 1981-82, Dr. Ursula Marvin described her field work and everything in between, which often included some very relatable content. One of her colleagues told her she snored. She fell asleep during an introductory lecture. And she had a beer with colleagues at the end of a long day. Assist a group of volunpeers in transcribing her notes from the Antarctic Search for Meteorites expedition, during which the seven-member crew collected hundreds of meteorite specimens.
