White Ships


Recommended Posts

:) About five years ago Duncan O'Brien of Vancouver, B.C., came out with his cocktail table book "White Ships". It is about the four white liners of Matson Lines 1930-6-?. It was like $65. I just saw on Amazon a used copy for $1,000. Now he is coming out with another one next month, (mine ordered) and it will be more about crew, passengers, etc, stories. As I am a child of a long time Chief Steward and former Director of Passenger Service for Matson, I am pleased to see such strong interest in that era of Matson. Surprising to me as you have to older then the hills to have had any connections with their passenger liners. There was a 1982 large book put out by the late Fred Stindt, a former purser, called "Matson's Century of Ships". Surprising it is on

Amazon for only $25-60. Of course I have that one too.


Anybody here sailed on one of the 4 ships?


New book is "The Grand Manner of Matson".
