CARL DREUTZER was born in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin, and has spent half his time in the woods and on the water as an adventurer, explorer and big game hunter. He attended the Naval Academy at Annapolis and left the navy to enter the University of Wisconsin, where he graduated in 1909. As a big game hunter and gold miner he has traversed most of the North American Continent. Mr. Dreutzer is an excellent speaker.
Lure of gold interested him in Alaska, where he has been connected with many mining operations. There he cultivated the friendship of Eskimos. In 1938 he was requested by the Field Museum to secure rare seal specimens (Ribbon and Oogruk), which he did.
The spring of 1940 he was commissioned by the Brookfield Zoo to hunt and capture a wild, young walrus for them. He captured three walrus near Cape Prince of Wales in the Arctic Ocean, transported them by plane to Nome, and then by ship and train to the Brookfield Zoo. Now, Brookfield Zoo has the only live walrus in captivity in the world.
