Hundra år av historieskrivning kring S.A.Andrée och hans polarexpedition / Urban Wråkberg.

Title: Hundra år av historieskrivning kring S.A.Andrée och hans polarexpedition / Urban Wråkberg.
Translated title: A hundred years of historical writing about S.A. Andrée and his Polar expedition.
Author(s): Wråkberg, Urban.
Date: 1998.
Language: Swedish.
In: Ymer. (1998.), Vol. 117 (1998)
Abstract: Article describes how Andrée Expedition is now best known Swedish Polar exploit, not least when photographs were brought home and speculations followed on cause of deaths. However, many northern explorers were just as inexperienced in their time, and that many returned somehow from further north, often overwintering. Also, Nansen's drifting method had not succeeded when Andrée's ideas were shaping, and balloon was steerable to 27 deg. from wind. And lighter than air was still way north, as Wellman and "Italia" tried and "Norge" showed. Finally, Inuit methods had not yet been seen as viable.
