Series 1.  Utility and Service Vessels, circa 1910-1960s (bulk bulk 1920s-1950s)

Extent: 133 EA
Language(s): In English.

Scope and Content Note

Items 001-124. Contains photographs of tugboats, barges, pile drivers, pilot boats, launches and other small craft underway, at dock and under construction mostly in the San Francisco Bay Area but also in Los Angeles, California, and the Pacific Northwest. Tugboat and tow companies represented in this series include Bay Cities Transportation Co., Crowley Launch and Tugboat Co., H. C. Peterson Inc., Harbor Tug and Barge Co., San Francisco Tugboat Department, Shipowners and Merchants Tug Co., Upper Columbia River Towing Co., and Washington Tug & Barge Co. Includes photographs of CROWLEY NO. 23 (built 1924; tugboat), which Hasenpusch was a captain on from 1945-1951, the pilot schooner CALIFORNIA (built 1924; schooner, 2m: pilot vessel), on which Hasenpusch worked as an engineer, and the tugboat and auxiliary fireboat FRANK G. WHITE (built 1949; tugboat), which was the last vessel that Captain Hasenpusch worked on. Also includes a few ship plans and documents.
Processing Note: There are some photographs of tugboats in other series in this collection. They are found in other series because the primary subject of the photograph is something else, not the tugboat. This is how the processing archivists found the photographs, so they were left in these groupings. It's unclear if this is original order, or something that previous SAFR staff did.

Arrangement

Arranged into five subseries: 1.1 Tugboats; 1.2 Tugboat and barge maritime companies; 1.3 Barges and pile drivers; 1.4 Pilot Boats, launches and small craft; 1.5 Boatbuilding - tugboats and small craft.

Processing Notes: The photographs in File Unit 1 were already in this grouping when archives staff found them in 2013.

Other photographs of vessels owned by these companies can be found in Series 1.2.

"[CLINTON PHILA]" possibly the name of the tugboat. There are men standing on the submarine.
In the summer of 1930, Hubert Wilkins made plans for a trans-Atlantic expedition involving a submarine, in order to gather polar meteorological data. He raised funds for the trip, and on July 15, 1930, he was able to lease a decommissioned 0-12 submarine from Lake & Danenhower, Inc.
In March 1931, he renamed the vessel NAUTILUS, in honor of Jules Verne's fictional submarine in TWENTY THOUSAND LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA. They left on June 4, 1931 and the expedition was relatively unsuccessful due to numerous problems with the submarine. They were able to gather some data but they had to cut the expedition short. NAUTILUS suffered serious damage during a storm in Norway and on November 30, 1931, the submarine was sunk outside of Bergen, Norway.
