Caption: US politician and attorney John K Kane (1795-1858, right) with two of his sons, explorer and physician Elisha Kane (1820-1857) and attorney Thomas Kane (1822-1883). Elisha studied medicine at the University of Pennsylvania Medical School, graduating in 1842. After serving as an assistant surgeon in the US Navy he was appointed senior medical officer for the Grinnell Arctic expedition of 1850-1851 that searched for the lost expedition of British explorer John Franklin. After the first expedition only found Franklin's first camp, Kane led the second Grinnell expedition in 1853.
