|"Robert M. Bryce...concludes this is proof of fraud.
Peary, he claims, set up this shot as phony supporting evidence, but
never published it, since it would not constitute absolute proof. By
this dubious rationalization, Bryce attempts to transform evidence
that supports Peary into evidence against him."
"Bryce also claims that a certain photo Peary published has been
tampered with, and would convict Peary. This is outrageously sloppy
scholarship. The document Bryce refers to states that the negative
of the photo in question is at the National Geographic Society, and
that an un-retouched print of the photo appears in the U.K. edition
of Peary's book."
"The negative and print utterly demolish Bryce's
claim that the sun had been cropped out of the photo. It is
inexcusable that Bryce did not check out these sources."
