Description
Captain Alfred Durkee papers, 1862-1955, (SAFR 22227, HDC 1620) consists of materials apparently compiled by a Durkee family descendant.
Background
Historical Note: Captain Alfred Durkee was originally from Nova Scotia and commanded the BALCLUTHA (built 1886; ship, 3m) from 1893-1899. His daughter, Inda Frances Durkee was born on the ship. Inda Durkee's granddaughter, Inda Kristan Steven Dunn, participated with the rechristening of the ship as it was again renamed the BALCLUTHA after being named the PACIFIC QUEEN (built 1886; ship, 3m) for some time.
