Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
These logs cover only the ship's operations, not the research work done by the scientists on board. Some logs have both a "rough" and "smooth" version. The logs cover its first research cruise to Southeast Asia and back, local operations in Monterey Bay, cruises down the California coast to Mexico, and cruises to the Galapagos Islands. There are also logs from a cruise before Stanford acquired the schooner.
The Te Vega was a 135-foot schooner acquired by the Hopkins Marine Station in 1962 for use as a seagoing classroom and research vessel. Its first research trip was a cruise from San Diego to the Indian Ocean, from June 1963 to the summer of 1965. It was sold in 1969 and replaced by the Proteus.
