I am reintroducing myself. I am a retired academic with an interest in US cultural history during the WWII era. My focus has been on the U.S. merchant marine for a number of years. I just finished a book-length history of a Grace Line C2-S-B1 freighter during this period, the S.S. SANTA MARGARITA (I) first renamed ALBONI in 1946 then SANTA ADELA in 1947. Scrapped in 1970. I tried to use the ship to connect the lives of merchant seamen, the war, shipbuilding and the shipping business.
