dc.description.abstractGraduate of Texas A&M University (Ph.D., 1973); Faculty member at Texas A&M University, College Station and Galveston and University of Houston at Clear Lake. Voyage journal; photographs (slides and captions); class records for “First Aid for Mariners;” penciled drawings from the cruise; and miscellaneous records and maps pertaining to the details of the trip. Dr. Hall served as the freshman English teacher for the 1973 summer cruise of the Texas Maritime Academy aboard the T/S Texas Clipper. Hall taught the seventy-plus “Prep Cadets,” spring high school graduates who earned six hours of college credit in the “Summer School at Sea” program at Texas A&M University at Galveston while they were handed the lowest cleaning /maintenance jobs on the ship. They were also exposed to the maritime careers at A&M. The journal and the log of captions for the photographs provide details into the daily life of the cruise faculty and student crewmembers, and the locales they visited, including Tenerife, Ocean Station (solar eclipse), Barcelona, Naples, Funchal, St. Thomas, and New Orleans. The 1973 cruise played a role as a floating scientific research platform during the solar eclipse, using NASA communications and weather satellite gear, borrowed from Jacques Cousteau’s research ship “Calypso.”en_US
