Group Supt he was very down-to-earth. I don't think his replacement
(D.H.) ever said a word to me, and I worked for him for a few months
on building closures.
I thought it was the Wisconsin but looked last night and the info
I could find had it in the Atlantic Fleet in late '52-'53. In the Iowa info
it was on the west coast at the time. Hard to say. But the appendix
doesn't show any Iowa class on the piers December 1952. Naturally on
the picture, there's no bow number on the ship but gee whiz I think
it's an Iowa class.
