Project Director: Norma Jean Garriton

Source of Materials: Intrepid Cruise Books, Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum.

This site will display cruise books from the USS Intrepid, an aircraft carrier for the United States Navy, which was commissioned in 1943. The cruise books are a compilation of photographs and written records compiled by the crew, for the crew documenting life on board. Organized in year-book fashion the books display the ship’s complex thirty-year military career through the eyes of the sailors and marines who called it home. The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum holds these books in their collection since the ship became a museum in 1982. Pages from the book with be wholly digitized to provide for accurate viewing.
