Dr. FredK Cook
at Union Station, Terre Haute,
Sep. '09
Photographed by Merriam

When I saw this postcard on Ebay I thought it said Dr. Fred K. Cook, but bought it anyway as it was taken in Terre Haute. It was only after the postcard arrived and I looked at it properly that I realized it wasn't Dr. Fred K. Cook but Dr. Frederick Cook of polar exploration fame. The second photograph came from Wikipedia and I used it to ensure that this really was Cook. There is some controversy over whether he, Robert Peary or indeed, either reached the North Pole but Cook reportedly reached it on April 22, 1908.
