This scrapbook, compiled by crewmember Henry Galaske, documents USS Constitution‘s travels along the West Coast of the United States in 1933. Comprised primarily of newspaper articles and clippings, this book provides documentary evidence of nearly every port along California, Oregon, and Washington at which Constitution stopped. Photographs of the ship and crew highlight life on board, while a variety of memorabilia (movie tickets, cachets, invitations to dinners and dances, etc) illustrate the assortment of in port activities to which Constitution‘s crew was treated.
