Treasure Chest Thursday - Kashima Maru Passenger List

When my grandfather, Merrill Haskell, went to Vladivostok, Russia in 1919 he sailed out of Seattle on the S.S. "Kashima Maru". He saved a copy of the passenger list, which provides details about the ship, the itinerary, and a list of the passenger. He is listed as a Saloon Passenger on page 4 as "Haskell, Mr. M., New York, N.Y.". The others he was traveling with, include "Norwood, Mr. R., New York, N.Y." on page 5 and "Wood, Mr. E.P. and Mrs., New York, N.Y." on page 6.

  1. I have to smile - when I first read your title of thought of Star Trek:
    The Kobayashi Maru is a test in the fictional universe of Star Trek. It is a Starfleet training exercise designed to test the character of cadets in the command track at Starfleet Academy. The Kobayashi Maru test was first depicted in the opening scene of the film Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and also appears in the 2009 film Star Trek. The test's name is occasionally used among Star Trek fans or those familiar with the series to describe a no-win scenario.

  2. That is funny - I did not remember that. Maybe I'll have to watch that one again.
