Host Note:
Bernard Rosecrans Hubbard was an explorer of Alaska, professor, lecturer, and photographer. He taught geology at the University of Santa Clara and made annual summer voyages to Alaska from 1926 until nearly the time of his death in 1962. Hubbard explored Alaska's glaciers, volcanoes, native people, and social and economic climate, and he delivered the findings of his expeditions in lectures throughout the United States. Hubbard was known as "the Glacier Priest" due to his experience with Alaskan exploration and his ordination as a Jesuit Catholic priest.
