The National Library of Scotland owns the impressive archive of Isobel Wylie Hutchison (1889 to 1982), a Scottish solo explorer, botanist, artist and writer.
Between 1927 and 1936, she journeyed across Greenland, the northern coast of Alaska, and Arctic Canada.
Hutchison documented her travels extensively, published several books and gave hundreds of lectures about her experiences. She became the first woman to be awarded the Royal Scottish Geographical Society's Mungo Park Medal for her outstanding contribution to geographical knowledge.
