Western Union Telegraph Expedition - Report of E. Everett Smith to C. Bulkley, July 26, 1867
About the Project
In the closing months of then Western Union Telegraph Expedition, E. Everett Smith submitted this report from the frozen rivers of Siberia. Smith traversed the unblemished Siberian landscape, but was he able to make any useful scientific observations before he received the order to cease operations? Relive what it was like for Everett over 150 years ago as you transcribe Smith’s report with your fellow digital #volunpeers.
