South Polar Times
Historically the South Polar Times was a newsletter produced by Scott's expedition teams of 1902 and 1910.
On this site the South Polar Times is a daily publication of snippets of all of each single day's journal entries and is also brought to you as a tribute to the original publication.
We use it to list of all of the journal (blog) entries of a single day on one single page. Each of the entries has the first few lines of the full entry and there is a link to the whole journal entry if you want to read it all.
Originally, the South Polar Times was an produced as "in-house magazine" during Scott's Discovery expedition to Antrctica of 1902. the magazine itself was produced over the winters of 1902-3, when the ship Discovery was ice-bound in McMurdo Sound.
Established in 1902 to both maintain morale and document the lives and work of the small colony at Cape Royds, it was a lively and unique journal, with content from any expedition member who wanted to put pen to paper. The 1902 South Polar Times was edited by Ernest Shackleton.
The South Polar Times was published again during the over-winter period of Scott's 1910 expedition. These editions were edited by Apsley Cherry-Garrard.
