Graham Westbrook Rowley
Born in Manchester, England, Graham Rowley received his B.A. from
Cambridge in 1934 and his M.A. in 1936. From 1936 to 1939, Rowley
engaged in an archaeological excavation in the Eastern Canadian Arctic.
During this time, he discovered new islands in Fox Basin, carried out
the original exploration of the Baffin Island coast, crossed Baffin
Island by a new route, and excavated the first major site in Dorset
culture. Because of his work with the Inuit and Dorset peoples, Rowley
had a large island and river in the Arctic named after him.
