Thanks to Kirmach Natani for the list of names. The photo is scanned from the DF-67
cruisebook. Here's a higher quality jpg (551kb) as well as my Photoshop (psd) file (37mb!)
if you are curious.

But...don't get too hung up on this photo...turns out that although the cruisebook describes
it as the "crew of Pole Station," it is not quite the winterover crew. In October 2014, Bill
Broome marked it up (below) indicating who wintered and who wasn't in the picture. The unmarked
folks in the photo did not winter. So it seems that this photo was taken before the end of summer,
with a mix of winter and summer men.

Meanwhile, Natani wrote that the official photo was taken at the midwinter party, with a sign to
that effect held in front of the group. He has a slide copy somewhere packed away. He's working
long hours as I am, perhaps someday he can dig it out.
