Second-in-Command to Byrd.
As the voyage south neared its end Byrd recorded the following decision in his journal: "My mind as to the men is now made up. Gould I have made Second in Command. A splendid fellow, competent, a brilliant geologist and popular with men. He has proper respect for the seriousness of the job... He will do well I am sure and I am fortunate to have him."
