Gould's out-of-the-classroom activities continued to be extensive and varied throughout this period. He produced numerous papers and articles on glacial geology. He was a popular speaker in a variety of forums on campus and off. In 1936 he was a delegate to the International Congress of Geodesy and Geophysics in Edinburgh, and in 1937 he attended an international geological congress in Moscow and then spent a month on a Russian icebreaker in the Arctic. In 1938-39 he served a term as president of the Minnesota Academy of Science. When the U.S. entered World War II he was granted a leave of absence to become chief of the Arctic section of the Army-Air Force's Arctic, Desert and Tropic Information Center. He returned to Carleton in the fall of 1944, and the following spring was instrumental in organizing a memorable four-day conference on "Problems of the Far North."
