About the Project

The Byrd Polar Research Center is recognized internationally as a leader in polar and alpine research. The Center is named in honor of Admiral Richard E. Byrd, America's most famous polar explorer. Activities at the Center are organized around research groups, a library, archival program, and the U. S. Polar Rock Repository. The Byrd Polar Research Center Archival Program is a collaborative effort of the Ohio State University Libraries and Byrd Polar Research Center.
The History Teaching Institute is the P-16 portal of The Harvey Goldberg Program for Excellence in Teaching, providing professional development in history to teachers and making standards-based, teacher-created, primary source lessons available on the web.
Special thanks to the Kane Lodge Foundation, Inc., for their generous support of the Byrd Polar Research Center Archival Program. Their continued support has made Cold Cases possible.
