Palmer Station Winter 1991
This photo is, from this distance, difficult. I have two versions from different years (both from Glenn Grant-thanks!) but both seem to suffer from issues, perhaps related to the (plexiglass?) cover and/or the soft muted colors in the photo. The above photo was extracted (and given a cleanup attempt) from my older copy of the photo hanging in the GWR stairwell.
Above, an older version of the photo taken in 2003.
And a newer photo after my cleanup attempt. Glenn took this in 2006.
The complete winterover list based on the above photo:

(Fred) Frederick Station manager/facility engineer Jody Hatchett Administrative assistant James Meis Communications technician Albert O'Kelly Power plant mechanic Jamie Pierce Cook Julian Ridley General assistant
The complete winterover list based on the June, 1991 Antarctic Journal:
Ronnie Baltz Materials person David B. Carlini Krill studies, UC Santa Barbara Hugh Cowan Physician Tom Frazer Krill studies, UC Santa Barbara Robert H. Frederick Station manager/facility engineer Jody Hatchett Administrative assistant James Meis Communications technician Albert O'Kelly Power plant mechanic Jamie Pierce Cook Julian Ridley General assistant Carol Wyatt Krill studies, UC Santa BarbaraBut...David Carlini and Carol Wyatt arrived on 6 February, and Tom Frazer arrived on 29 March...and all three of them headed north on the Polar Duke on 8 June, so I have not considered them to be winterovers. Robert (Fred) Frederick's name in the photo is misspelled, as everywhere else (including science sitreps signed by him) use the Frederick spelling. Mike Butler was listed as the science tech in the June through September sitreps and was mentioned as being on station on 30 September, so he presumably left on the late October cruise. As for Karen Butler...Ronnie Baltz confirmed that she was the lab supervisor. [unedited original photo taken in 2003, 652k] and [unedited original photo taken in 2006, 2.7mb]
