Although many contributed material for the creation of this page - names appear on the pictures themselves or in some other form; much of the data was provided by Mr Charles F Ulrich, Commodore and Historian, AP Transport Reunion Group - which represents 16 of the ships listed  We wish to thank him, and his staff - especially Charles R Boland, for the wonderful memories our alumni now recall after having been stimulated by seeing the names, and pictures, of those great ships that took us to a land and school we so dearly love I also wish to recognize the documents he provided, from which some data was obtained

RESOLUTION

This site has been formatted for 800x600 resolution   Although it can be viewed in higher resolutions, the alignment and content of the pages can BEST BE VIEWED IF YOU SET YOUR RESOLUTION TO 800X600

 


We apologize for the poor quality of some pictures; however, we thought you might at least be interested in seeing what we have - even if it is only a silhouette - the "detail" having been lost during the 'reproduction' processes Some pictures were 3rd or 4th generation "copies" of an original that was first copied to "reproduction" paper at a local print shop
