Abstract
    Like many other human enterprises, the Polar Years left their mark in spheres that lay outside their primary purpose. Some of the IPY-1 stations in remote locations are now of great archaeological interest. As the first “mass participation” Polar Year, the IGY was the subject of several works of literature and the other arts, though only in a few countries. And a small number of people, some of them scientists but the majority in supporting roles, were seriously injured or lost their lives while taking part in a Polar Year.
