Captain Clifford J. MacGregor (1904-1985), a meteorologist, is best known for the MacGregor Arctic Expedition to Etah, Greenland, a 15 month long mission (July 1, 1937- October 3, 1938) spent gathering weather data, understanding the effects of the aurora borealis on radio transmissions, and clearing up the question of Crocker Land which Peary placed on the maps more than 30 years ago and which we found to be nonexistent (MacGregor 1939: 366). MacGregor believed that by studying the movement of air masses in the Artic, he would be able to more accurately predict the weather in the northern hemisphere.
