Cold War Group: Northwind - Where was this ship?
« on: June 20, 2017, 03:18:33 am »
For this set of records we need very simple information for a first pass.

Tracking Arctic journeys:
We need to know which log books contain journeys to the Arctic, in the Arctic, or from the Arctic, including, unusually, those made during winter months.
Kevin has suggested that we consider anything beyond 55 N as being in the Arctic. However, it appears that 45 N may be a better choice for the Atlantic; please use that for now.

Purpose:
Our long-range goal is to map the edge of the Arctic ice both in the Atlantic and in the Pacific.
Our short-range goal is to locate the useful log books so that we can go back for more details.
Kevin has asked if we can break the work down in this way.

Ship's logs:
Here the logs are grouped by the year. You don't need to sign up for the whole year. Just specify the month or months that you want. Please report the location on a monthly basis.

Other sources:
You can also look through these references to see if a list of the journeys has already been transcribed:
Northwind (WAG / WAGB-282) CG Historian and Old Weather-NHN from 1/1/1946 to 3/31/1956

Details to report:
1) The year, the months when your ship was on a journey to the Arctic, in the Arctic, or on its way home from the Arctic, and whether it was in the Atlantic or Pacific.
2) If your log has a page specifying the journeys or you found a list elsewhere, please report that finding.
3) There is no need to record the presence or absence of ice.

Below is the list of logs.
Pop a note in this topic to offer to take a set of logs, and then post your results in this topic as well.

It's as simple as that at this stage. Thank you.

Then there is a mixup in the links.
https://catalog.archives.gov/id/23654584 is 1952

However https://catalog.archives.gov/id/23655480 is 1955 so I'll do that one next.
