Peck, Hugh A.

In July 1909, Hugh A. Peck boarded a Revillon Frères steamer, appropriately named the S.S. Adventure. The Adventure left Montreal for Strutton Island, Nunavut, the distribution centre of Revillon Frères for the James Bay region.

Hugh Peck put together a remarkable collection of Inuit artifacts. He also took a great number of photographs and kept a detailed journal of his adventure, writing passages on the fur trade, the dangers encountered, the manufacture and use of certain tools by the Inuit and on his impressions of the waterscape, landscape and people he met.
