The International Geophysical Year lasted from July 1, 1957 to December 31, 1958 and marked the end of a long period during the Cold War when scientific exchange between the East and the West had ceased. Hunterdon County author and historian, John Kuhl, was in the Navy during this period and was aboard a ship in Antarctica -- talk about a Cold War! A historian even then, John recorded his voyages via both camera stills and movie reels. Never seen by the public, John will be playing these incredible films and pictures via a powerpoint presentation while describing his adventures in one of the most hostile and wild places on the planet!
