9Title:  Schooner passage: sailing ships and the Lake Michigan frontier   
 Creator:  Karamanski, Theodore J., 1953- 
 Publication:  Wayne State University Press, Chicago Maritime Society, Detroit, Chicago], ©2000. 
 Notes:  Includes bibliographical references (pages 241-254) and index. "Throughout the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, schooner trade was a well-developed system of maritime transport for commodities such as grain, lumber, and iron. The schooner trade was as critical to the development of the Great Lakes region as covered wagons were to the Far West and paddle wheel steamers were to the South. Schooners sailed the Great Lakes in large numbers and played a formative role in the shaping of pioneer life throughout the region. The schooners that traveled the Lake Michigan basin succeeded in bringing a range of shoreline communities and four separate states into one coherent region. Although schooners successfully competed with steam vessels for more than a half century, wooden sailing ships could not match the scale of the giant steel bulk carriers that began to emerge from shipyards in the twentieth century. The Mary A. Gregory - one of the last schooners left - was torched, sunk, and buried in Lake Michigan in 1926. Schooner Passage is a history of these magnificent sailing vessels and their role in maritime trade along Lake Michigan. Schooner Passage will interest scholars and students of Great Lakes and American history as well as the general reader interested in nineteenth-century western expansion."--Jacket.

14Title:  John B. Goodman collection, 1919-1991   
 Creator:  Goodman, John B. (John Bartlett), 1901-1991 
 Notes:  The "California Gold Rush Fleet Encyclopedia of Vessels Sailing from the East Coast of the United States and Canada for San Francisco, December 7-1848-December 31, 1849" comprises individual histories of 762 ships as well as various subject files, arranged in alphabetical order. Goodman records a broad spectrum of information derived from a variety of sources about the multitude of Gold Rush vessels. The bulk of the manuscripts are photocopies and some are heavily annotated in the author's hand. Some histories include hand colored illustrations of maps and ships. They were written and edited between 1970-1991. Note: This collection of factual data is also made available in tabular form for "instant recall" in The Key to the Goodman Encyclopedia of the California Gold Rush Fleet as published by the Zamarano Club in 1992. The addenda box includes various illustrations, lists, and statistics regarding the California Gold Rush vessels. The contents are arranged alphabetically by subject. Boxes 13-18 contain the original typescripts to "Goodman's Encyclopedia of the California Gold Rush Fleet." The contents are arranged alphabetically by ship name. Boxes 19-23 consist of manuscripts and related matter regarding the California Gold Rush. Box 19 contains another version of Goodman's Gold Rush encyclopedia with very few corrections. Folders 5 and 6 are Goodman's draft of factual data in tabular form entitled "The John B. Goodman III Cellular Computer for the 1849 Gold Rush Fleet." Also included is a manuscript of "For California: Direct in 1849-List of Mining Companies Formed in Various States & Sailed from Various Atlantic Seaports." The last two items are photocopies and miscellaneous notes from the San Jose Pioneer. Boxes 20-21 consist of manuscripts and notes removed from two binders. The first binder housed miscellaneous materials accumulated by Goodman pertaining to the California Gold Rush vessels. Subjects found in this binder included a tally of Gold Rush vessels built, a list of ship and map illustrations, a list of arrival and departures, bibliography of works consulted, list of mining companies sailing for California, names of captains and their vessels, list of store ships, and other assorted lists. The second binder consisted of "Boats Arriving in San Francisco Bay," which are notes and excerpts extracted from the San Francisco Weekly, Tri-Weekly, and Daily Alta California. Also removed from this binder is an orange folder with a chronological list of vessels sailing from New York for California and Way Ports from December 7, 1848-December 31, 1849. The last two items in Box 21 are two books: "Index to the Argonauts of California" by Charles Warren Haskins and "A Reminiscence of Parker H. French Expedition through Texas & Mexico to California in the Spring of 1850." Boxes 22-23 consist of clippings, notes, journals, photographs, printed matter, and other materials related to the California Gold Rush. The excerpts and notes are from various publications, which include the Boston Daily Evening Transcript, New York Daily Herald, and New York Tribune. The photographs consist of images of the West from Goodman's personal collection and reproductions of San Francisco photographs from the San Francisco Public Library. The manuscripts and printed matter includes personal stories, autobiographies, and journeys of individuals such as Meredith Tarlton Moore, a soldier in the Mexican War and a trader on the California Trail, and Jacob Marhoffer, a prominent citizen of Crescent City, California. Boxes 24-27 include materials related to Goodman's unpublished manuscript "An Annotated Bibliography of California County Histories." Boxes 24-25 are photocopies of the typescript. Box 26 contains another version of Goodman's California county histories. These were once contained in a binder and appear to be an earlier version of the photocopies in Boxes 24 and 25. Box 27 includes additional pages from Goodman's bibliography. The bulk of these pages are fragments and duplicates. Other contents in Box 27 include correspondence, maps, notes, negatives and prints related to California counties. llustrations are found in Boxes 28-29 and two oversize folders. Box 28 includes pen and ink and rough sketches for John W. Wood, an unknown manuscript, in Goodman's hand. The bulk of these illustrations depict life on the Overland Trails and in the mines. The first folder consists of miscellaneous notes and maps regarding these illustrations. The contents are arranged alphabetically by the caption or title of the illustration. Some of these illustrations include preliminary sketches and prints. Box 29 includes 33 folders of miscellaneous illustrations and ephemera. The bulk of these illustrations are in the hand of Goodman while others are prints. They were possibly done in relation to his work as an art director for Paramount and Universal Studios from 1932-1946. The first oversize folder contains thirty-three printed illustrations for the Thompson and West publication of "History of Santa Barbara County, California." The second oversize folder consists of four miscellaneous sketches and ephemera.

15Title:  Pusey and Jones Corporation photograph collection   
 Creator:  Conner, William J. 
 Notes:  The scope of this almost exclusively photographic collection includes both shipbuilding and machine making components of the business. The shipbuilding photographs begin in the late 1800s and document in many cases construction from keel laying to christening of individual ships. There were a number of ferries and steamboats built at Pusey & Jones. Among the companies supplied with ships were the Delaware and New Jersey Ferry Co.; Jamestown & Newport Ferry Co.; Naugatuck Valley Steamboat Co., and the Philadelphia & Norfolk S.S. Co. In addition, Pusey & Jones is well-known for its luxury yachts; there are two portfolios with color lithos showing paintings by A. W. Armstrong of Acania, Cambriona, Galaxy, Lotusland, Nakhoda and Rene. Microfilm plans (see below) exist for some yachts including Galatea built for Edsel Ford and Sialia built for J. K. Stewart. Pusey & Jones also built floating stock for railroad companies. For the Pennsylvania Railroad Company, for example, they built tugs, barges, and grain elevators. Their joinery shop also did work for the United States Lines's twin ocean liners, the Manhattan and the Washington. Most of the industrial photographs also document the construction of machines. There are some photographs taken at other establishments that show Pusey & Jones machinery in situ at domestic and foreign mills and factories, for example, at the Ontario Paper Company. Other photographs document the Pusey & Jones plant and its buildings (exterior and interior); the work force and management; employee outings and banquets; parades in Wilmington, Delaware; World War Two military work; and striking machinists. There are several albums which include copies of "cuts" (lithographic reproductions) that were used in company publications. These are of significant importance since a large group of photos and their negatives (roughly from 1928 to the mid 1930s) were never sent to the Hagley. Consequently, cuts found in these albums are often the only visual information found from ships built during that period. For example, the only two images of the President Warfield (Baltimore Steam Packet Company ferry) are found in these albums. This collection also includes some items from the Pennsylvania Shipbuilding Company. There is no known business relationship between Pusey & Jones Company and this company, so the provenance of these items is uncertain. They consist of two groups of water damaged but readable blueprints labeled "Drawing numbers 15087 and 15088" which are dated 1918. The former group relates to a proposition for building a dry dock on the New Jersey side of the Hudson River. There is a 20 page report that specifys all the terms (including lease) and financial calculations of the proposal and lists the drawings. The drawings are of the: Site plan; "photograph of perspective" (damaged) which is an artist's vision of the completed yard; Plan of yard; Machinery layout of Big Machine Shop (for heavy work), General Repair Shop, Blacksmith and Boiler shop; Detail of General Repair Shop; Detail of Machine Shop for heavy repair work; Detail of Electric Welding, Tinsmith, Plumbing and Templet (sic) Shops; Power House; Coal and Ash Conveyor for dry dock. The second group of drawings relate to a proposed shipyard in Gloucester City, N.J., in Camden County across the Delaware River from Philadelphia where Pennsylvania Shipbuilding was originally located. There are photographs of the Gloucester City site in the collection as well. The drawings listed #15088 are as follows: Perspective of yard; Profile of yard; Machinery layout of large shop and power house; Machinery layout of general repair shop 1st and 2nd arrangement; Map of Delaware River showing location of shipyard; Location of ships at the Pier; Dredging plan on which bid is based; Supplementary dredging plan; Plan of small dock; Plan of large dock; Small graving dock/floating dock. There are 65 rolls of microfilm of copied drawings of ships, various machines, and miscellaneous other drawings produced by Pusey & Jones. The earliest drawings date from the 19th century and are of iron/wood/steel side wheelers. Not all of these drawings were executed. The majority of the drawings show ship details including mechanical systems. Very few ships have complete plans. What has survived is incomplete parts--often from different systems and on different rolls of microfilm. There is an index filed by ship name for the microfilmed drawings. No original documents of these plans survive. The only blueprints surviving on paper are those for one passenger and auto ferry, Del-Mar-Va, which was built for the Virginia Ferry Corporation in 1933. The component of mechanical drawings on microfilm include an enormous variety of items not related to ships. For example, there are pumps, presses, lifting tables, plate mills, driving gears, clutches, shafts, bearings, motor drives, engine parts, cylinders, highway stringers, boilers among others.
