NORDENSKJÖLD'S SWEDISH ANTARCTIC EXPEDITION, 1901-1903
Stokes joined Nordenskjöld's steamer Antarctic at Buenos Aires in 1901. The expedition sailed south to the Falklands, New Year Island south of Cape Horn and south towards the Antarctic ice fields. After further landfalls at the South Shetland islands and on Terre Louis Philippe the Antarctic attempted to reach the Antarctic continent but was unable to break through the pack ice and, with coal supplies exhausted, returned to Terre Louis Philippe. Nordenskjöld planned to winter on Snow Hill Island and Stokes, having already one hundred and fifty Antarctic sketches, accompanied the scientific staff who returned to the South Shetland Islands and thence to Port Stanley, from where the artist returned to the United States by a Pacific Mail steamer. Stokes thereby avoided the later drama of the expedition which had to be rescued by the Argentinians after the Antarctic was crushed in the ice of the Weddell Sea on the return journey south from the Falklands (to relieve Nordenskjöld's wintering party on Snow Hill Island).
