Why is it Important?
Of the five scrapbooks, the one compiled by Franciezek “Frank” Prusz is perhaps the most personal. Only 18 when he embarked with USSConstitution on the three-year National Cruise, Prusz devotes a good portion of his scrapbook to life aboard ship, with photographs of his friends in the crew (many labeled with nicknames) and their activities both on and off the ship. Also included are booklets on the history of the ship, postcards, programs, stamps, tickets and passes, and memorabilia from various ports.
