Thanks to Ed ("Joe") Lanouette and his daughter Elizabeth Emge (who transcribed the handwritten original from the 1955 trip), his journal is now available. I note that the last entry is for 16 September.
Thanks also to Marilyn, who provided the space.
I expect to post more Moffatt material here.

This looks like a great read, Allen, thanks for posting... out of books right now too.

Thanks.
I'd be pleased to try to answer questions.

Hi Allan, I've only read the first several days and will get into it on the weekend. This isn't the first time I've seen reference to the Moffat trip here... being totally ignorant about why the attention, the most I can recall is this was a disaster trip with starvation and deaths?

Deaths. One (Moffatt), in the afternoon of 14 September 1955.

Starvation. The evidence of participant LeFavour for that day.
Up to that point we had shot five caribou and by doing so had saved enough meat to see us through. Now it was not even necessary to spend time hunting. [The Evening Recorder, Amsterdam NY. Part 3 of 4, page 8, 29 December (1955).]

Thanks for the interest. Allan
