Graduate of Fordham University (B.A.); and Rice University (Ph.D.) Contains subject and chronological files pertaining to the research for the book, The Ship that Would Not Die: USS Queens, SS Excambion, and the Texas Clipper. Dr. Curley conducted exhaustive research on a single ship that began its life as an attack transport in World War II. In 1946, the ship was purchased by the American Export Lines to become the SS Excambion, one of the “Four Aces” cruise ships. In 1965, the ship transitioned into the much beloved training ship, the Texas Clipper, for the Texas Maritime Academy until its retirement in 1996. In 2007, the Texas Clipper made it final voyage off the coast of Texas where it was sunk to become an artificial reef.en_US
