This is a picture from the inside cover of a Book I own.. It's a 70 year old forecasting book.
I finally, got off my lazy but and did a little research.
Turns out, this appears to have been owned and used by Harris-Clichy Peterson, Physicist (Harcly or Pete), a member of:
The Ronne Antarctic Research Expedition (1947-48), led by Finn Ronne, was the last privately sponsored U.S. expedition. Using Byrd's old base, East Base, on Stonington Island, Ronne closed the unexplored gap at the head of the Weddell Sea.
The expedition explored a 1/4 of a million square miles of territory and mapped a further 450,0000 square miles of newly discovered land.

I sent them a copy of that above, and some more information and have offered it to the family if they want it for their collection.
