The Sea journals kept by Dr. L.L. Stanley aboard the City of Los Angeles (built 1899; passenger vessel) (SAFR 16503, HDC 159)
document travel to South America in 1928. Stanley, formerly a physician at San Quentin prison, took this voyage following
his wife's death. The two volumes are well-written narratives that describe the ports of call such as Callao, Peru; Caracas,
Venezuela; Mazatlan, Mexico; Port au Spain, Trinidad; Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and Valparaiso, Chile. There are many snapshots
which help to document a North American's view of South America. Also noted are passenger activities and incidents relating
to the crew. Newsclippings and programs are also included. The collection is available for research use without restriction.
