My dad, Gerard (Jerry) Driscoll was a photographer and my mother, Annette Aida Cole, was in the secretary pool. My dad tells stories of a trip he took during the Thanksgiving Holiday in 1964 so he worked there at least until then.

They are both still alive, married, and now reside in Sayville, New York.

Post WW-2 I sailed on the SS MORMACWAVE as Radio Officer. Made one trip on the "Scantic run" (Goteborg). Then one trip to South Amerioca, Buenos Aires, Montevide.
Nice ship.

Thank you for all this wonderful information about the vessel that I knew as the Universe Explorer.

In January of 2000 I embarked on an amazing voyage around the world on the Universe Explorer that lasted about 100 days. We disembarked in Seattle in early May. This voyage was managed by the Institute for Shipboard Education aka Semester at Sea, which leased the vessel. We were a community of approximately 600 college students, maybe 50 faculty and families, and 32 senior passengers. All of the senior passengers were housed on the topmost deck.

In the summer of 2002 I once again boarded the Universe Explorer to cruise the waters off Alaska. She may have shown her age a bit at the end, but to me she will always be a beautiful memory.

I sailed from New York to Buenos Aires in August 1950. I think it was the ARGENTINA but it could have been one of the other two sisters, URUGUAY or BRAZIL. In any case I remember the 18 day trip vividly, and the arrival in Buenos Aires on a cold August morning (from Montevideo). My sister was two years old and one of my jobs on board was making sure she did not go near the railings. My mother was on board, my father awaited us in Buenos Aires. Between then and 1956 we made several more round trips to the US and back, on summer vacations. Those 18 days away from the ordinary world stay with me as treasures that one could not easily find today.

How exciting to be able to read so much information about the ship on which my family emigrated to the USA from Argentina in 1952. Thank you for preserving the information that brought back such very happy memories to me.

My dad, John Howard Price, was a Captain on the SS Brasil and served under Captain Sadler. I believe it was in the late 40's - early 50's. My dad passed away in 1988 but I have log books, menus, and other types of memorabilia I would love to share with the Moore-McCormack website. Please let me know how I can help.

PS- The ships doctor at the time was Dr. Black who my father found out lived in the same condominium on Hutchinson Island, Florida.
