Doc Savage 004 - The Polar Treasure

Doc Savage 004
June 1933
The Polar Treasure
by Lester Dent as Kenneth Robeson




Doc and the gang save the life of a blind musician who's the key to finding a treasure sunken in the polar icecap.  I managed to get this far in the Doc Savage series before running into any particularly nasty racism.  Dent must have been saving it up, because he does not like him some Eskimos.  In addition to being savage and ignorant, a sentence doesn't go by without calling them greasy or smelly.

Things that Doc Savage is the best in the world of in this episode include world's best composer and world's best singing voice.  Also, he can cure blindness and his skin repels water like a duck.
