Ernest Aderman Biography:
Ernest "Shorty" Aderman (1888-1976) was a master mariner and marine photographer that worked on various vessels in Europe
and the United States in the early twentieth century. He sailed with training ships, light house tenders, lifesaving vessels,
schooners, barks, steamers, fishing vessels, steam schooners and yachts, all before becoming steward at the Los Angeles Yacht
Club in 1942. Aderman documented many of his voyages by taking photographs, many of which he developed himself (some while
on board the vessel).
