Welcomed back to Carleton, March 16, 1957.
Gould returned from his second voyage to Antarctica in March, stopping first Washington to attend a National Science Board meeting, and then in New York to become the 20th individual awarded the prestigious Explorer's Club Medal. [The bronze medal and accompanying certificate are on display nearby.] The following day he flew back to Minneapolis -- where he was greeted, much to his surprise, by a group of some 400 Carls who had rented buses to transport themselves, Mrs. Gould, and a Carleton pep band to Wold-Chamberlain Airport.
