Interior pages from the 1932-33 cruise journal by Perry Duncan

When Perry Duncan enrolled in the Engineering program at the California Nautical School in 1931, he created a journal that encapsulated the memorabilia from the 1932 U. S. East Coast & 1933 around-the-world training ship cruises.  M/S Duncan collected unique items such as postcards, hotel stickers, beer & wine labels, newspaper clippings and included personal photographs he took during these voyages.

You can view a scanned copy of the full journal on the Cal Maritime Library’s website and read more details about the journal from an article in the Cal Maritime magazine.
