A newspaper, The North Georgia Gazette and Winter Chronicle, was published during the wintering-over, 1819-20, of Parry's first arctic expedition. The authors of the contributions were anonymous. In a presentation copy of the London edition of the Gazette, now in the Research Library of the U.S. Air Force Geophysics Laboratory, Parry had pencilled in the names of most of the contributors. These notations are here published.
