    Historical or Biographical Note

    The C.D. BRYANT was a wooden bark built in 1878 in Searsport, Maine, in the style known as a Down Easter. The bark was built by Josiah Dutch, and had a capacity of 929 tons. After launching, the C.D. BRYANT sailed immediately for the west coast, from where it traded for many years. The C.D. BRYANT was based out of San Francisco. It was sold to E.E. Kentfield of San Francisco in 1886; and to Captain Alex Woodside in 1916.
    The ship was accidentally set on fire in Honolulu in July 1901 by crew members who broke into the whiskey stores; and was only saved from being a total loss by assistance from the tug FEARLESS and the Honolulu fire department.
    The last recorded voyage of the C.D. BRYANT began in January, 1920, from San Francisco to Suva. From there, the ship went to Newcastle, Australia, and carried coal to Iquique. On October 7, 1920, she pulled into Callao "leaking badly." The last intelligence on the ship was that she was laid up at Port of Spain, in 1922.
