Antarctic Journal list was published. Rufus Zogbaum,
a biologist from DePaul University, arrived on an early
season Hero cruise and participated in a September-
October 1978 Islas Orcadas cruise in the Weddell and
Scotia seas. He participated in a small portion of the
winter, hence the small photograph.
