This chapter turns to another important event in the life of Annie Montague Alexander: her meeting with Louise Kellogg. Kellogg became Alexander's companion on an expedition to Alaska, and the two soon became lifelong companions. The discussion examines the letters exchanged between Alexander and Grinnell regarding the companion Alexander would take to Alaska, and several excerpts from these letters are provided. It then gives some background information on Kellogg, and states that the 1908 expedition to Alaska was her first exposure to fieldwork. The chapter also provides some details on the Alaskan expedition.
