Footnotes

  • The S.Y. Lyndonia was an 812-gross ton yacht owned by Cyrus H.K. Curtis, owner of the Curtis Publishing Company. Well known and the pride of part of the Maine coast, the majority of her crew were from Maine towns. It has been noted that the Lyndonia's whistle was a signal of the beginning of summer in Camden, Maine. Following Commodore Curtis' death, the Lyndonia was sold to Pan American Airways and renamed Southern Seas. The yacht later foundered in a typhoon at Okinawa in 1945.
