de Saisset Museum Presents Father Hubbard: Trekking Through Alaska

The de Saisset Museum presents Father Hubbard: Trekking Through Alaska on view February 25 through June 3, 2011.

As part of The Big Read, a program of the National Endowment for the Arts, designed to restore reading to the center of American culture, and in connection with Jack London’s Call of the Wild, the de Saisset Museum will host an exhibition related to Father Hubbard, “The Glacier Priest.” A Jesuit priest from California, Father Hubbard led annual expeditions to Alaska. He used Santa Clara University as his base camp while he explored the “wilds” of Alaska by foot, plane, boat, and dogsled. This exhibition will focus on images and artifacts from Father Hubbard’s numerous trips to Alaska, placing special emphasis on objects relating to his dogsled expeditions.
