Heroism-The Highest Form of Strength – Strength Magazine – February, 1924

Nowhere is physical courage and strength of character at a greater premium than in the Arctic. For it is “north of 53” that the elements conspire to try men’s souls, and to reveal their excellent as well as evil qualities. The pitiless polar regions make a more searching analysis of a man’s character, courage, and physical endurance than the battlefield.
