Was Herald Island named for the New York Herald? --AW 14:09, 13 June 2007 (UTC)

Answered my own question. This page [1] says it was the HMS Herald. --AW 14:13, 13 June 2007 (UTC)

Influence on Nansen[edit]

One of the interesting facts about his expedition is that several years later, wreckage from the Jeannette was discovered on the American side of the Arctic Ocean. This led Nansen to hypothesize that the sea-ice was in constant motion from the Siberian coast to the American coast. It was to test this hypothesis that the "Fram" expedition was mounted.--APRCooper 20:51, 13 June 2007 (UTC)

Rescue efforts[edit]

The contention that the Corwin and Rodgers efforts were "ill-planned" needs specific citation and IMO some qualification. Their scope was necessarily limited but the execution [except of course for losing the Rodgers to fire in the middle of a Siberian winterDankarl (talk) 13:58, 4 September 2009 (UTC)] was pretty good. They established that the Jeanette had been seen, in good condition; that she had not landed parties on Herald or Wrangell Island; and that no survivors had come ashore within reach of their shore searches.Dankarl (talk) 15:01, 28 July 2009 (UTC)
