Denver Museum of Nature & Science says
Former Museum director Alfred M. Bailey conducted fieldwork around the world during the mid-20th century. He shared his adventures during a popular film lecture series featuring his motion pictures and a live talk, making armchair travel possible long before the Internet. Today, we are sharing Bailey’s adventures through digitally restored film. For this program, travel to Campbell Island, where in 1958 the only way to get there was on a U.S. Navy transport. The island was inhabited by birds, sea lions, and a few scientists and technicians who managed the meteorological station. More than 200 pounds of material were collected and shipped 9,000 miles back to Denver. See spectacular landscape and unique interactions between humans and wildlife. Bailey’s grandson Jack Murphy, (pictured left with Bailey) traveled on this expedition as a teenager and will be a special guest at the event.
