1/30- Historical Perspective - Dave Edwards - Pictures I took while aboard the John Stanton as a deckhand in 1951. The John Stanton was a part of the Hutchinson Fleet and the Pioneer Steamship Company. She was built in 1905 at American Ship building Co. in Lorain, Ohio, and was 504 ft long, 54 ft wide, and had 30 telescoping hatches. The Captain in 1951 was E.P. Maxim. She was scrapped in 1962 when Pioneer Steamship Co. ceased operations. Jane Hutchinson Cauffield, John T. Hutchinson's daughter, is a friend of mine. She is still living and in her early 90's. She has the bell from the John T. Hutchinson in her living room.
