    Acquisition Information

    SAFR-02167
    SAFR-02167 was a gift to the San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park in 2011 from James Batchelder, a member of the family that formerly owned EVA B.

    Historical or Biographical Note

    EVA B. (motor launch), a Monterey Clipper type vessel, was built circa 1936-1938 by Menotti Pasquinucci (1867-1954) at the foot of Turney Street in Sausalito, California. The Batchelder Family owned the vessel for recreational use until about 1949. New owners later renamed the vessel JUANITA and used her for duck hunting in the Sacramento Delta region. As of 2002, EVA B. is being preserved as part of the San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park's small craft collection.

    Collection Scope and Content

    The Batchelder family photographs of Eva B. (motor launch), 1937-1949, (SAFR 23355, P11-004) are comprised of 21 color slides depicting the Batchelder family aboard EVA B. as well as showing EVA B. while moored in the San Francisco Bay Area and Sacramento Delta region of California. The collection has been processed to the item level and is open for use.
    The Batchelder family photographed the images between 1937-1949 in the San Francisco Bay Area, including Paradise Cove, Raccoon Strait, and Richmond Harbor, as well as at Steamboat Slough in the Sacramento Delta. The collection contains twelve slides showing Eva Batchelder and her children, George, Paul, Jim, Ann, and John, aboard EVA B. while underway. Seven slides contain views of EVA B. tied up, some showing 28G34 painted on her bow. The collection also includes two scenic views taken from aboard EVA B., one showing Red Rock Island and one showing Point Diablo with the Golden Gate Bridge in view.

    Collection Arrangement

    During an inventory at the time of accession, the slides were placed in order by the handwritten number on the slide mounts, then by imprinted slide number also on the mount. The processing archivist maintained this order in December 2012.
