This web site consists of material contributed by a number of people, and it is their desire to share what meant a great deal to them in their life with you.  All involved have made sacrifices and expended personal resources to make this available to you.  We don't sell anything here, and ask nothing of you, EXCEPT, to respect our work and abide by the ALL RIGHTS RESERVED request.

That phrase, similar to the "copyright" notice everyone is familiar with, has become the "standard" notice used throughout the Internet.  It is just a simple reminder to you to please respect our work. Enjoy what you see and reflect back to the great adventures you had on one of those great ships; but please don't "remove" material from this site.  One can never justify for any reason the misappropriation of something that doesn't belong to them; and you don't have to do that to start with.

If you need something, simply write the person below, and explain what it is you want to use; how, why and where you want to use it .......  You can then be registered, and permission granted to use it. With that permission comes the "customary" requirement that you show the source of the material.  You will then be listed on a special page on this site as having received that permission and thus there can never be a question by anyone about how you obtained the material.

This site is not only for those who want to visit, but for those who want to participate and contribute.  We do not accept funds -- only material   ("text" like stories, data, and pictures ....).  If you have material you would like to donate to the site just contact the person below.

If you see portions of this website on the Internet or in published material please notify the person below.

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.

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.
