Cold War Group: Staten Island - Where was this ship?
« on: June 23, 2017, 04:51:16 pm »
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:
Note that in some cases the Deck Log -- Title Page or a similar page will tell you where the ship started and finished. Sometimes that will give you sufficient information. However, in this case, all you can see that the ship was not in the Arctic at the beginning of the month and it ended the month "ENROUTE." You need to look at the last page. The positions there tell you that the ship finished the month in the Arctic (by the definition above).

Other sources:
You can also look through these references to see if a list of the journeys has already been transcribed:
Staten Island DANFS and Old Weather-NHN from 4/1/1952 to 12/31/1955.

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.

Doing 1952.

The September 1952 links are incorrect, they should be:
https://catalog.archives.gov/id/23788581
https://catalog.archives.gov/OpaAPI/media/23788581/content/dc-metro/rg-024/594258/0006/Staten-Island-AGB-5-1952-09/Staten-Island-AGB-5-1952-09-0001.jpg

April 1952 - Non-arctic, Boston.
May 1952 - Non-arctic, Boston.
June 1952 - Non-arctic, Boston.
July 1952 - Arctic. Boston (1st) - Hopedale, Lab. (7th-20th) - Frobisher Bay - Saglek Bay (end of month).
August 1952 - Arctic. Saglek Bay, Frobisher Bay, Grenfell Sound, etc.. En route to Narsarssuak end of month.
September 1952 - Arctic. Narsarssuak (2nd) - Boston (8th).
October 1952 - Non-arctic. Boston.
November 1952 - Non-arctic. Boston.
