In fact, it was to be the most comprehensive scientific attack on the Arctic of all time, with the largest scientific staff ever taken on such an expedition. Its leader, Vilhjalmur Stefansson, was celebrated for his studies of Eskimo life and with this expedition would find the evidence that proved his staunchly held belief that there was a last unexplored continent, hidden beneath the great polar ice cap. On 17 June 1913, the Canadian Arctic Expedition aboard the HMCS Karluk set sail from the Esquimalt Naval Yard in Victoria, British Columbia. Six weeks later, the Arctic winter had begun, the Karluk was trapped by the polar ice and those on board had been abandoned by their leader.
