Fred Carpenter’s Grandson Visits Ship

We were delighted to invite Merle H.G. Carpenter, Fred’s grandson, aboard this month. Merle has grown up hearing of the family’s old ship but had never had the opportunity to come aboard. He was able to identify many people and places from our historic photo collection and has kindly volunteered to help us with putting together a family tree and to dig out some other North Star photos that he has inherited.Merle seemed quite at home aboard and we hope that he will be able to visit again and bring his children – Fred’s great grand children aboard!
