1938 Whaling Expedition of the Ulysses, 1937-1938 by LTJG Quentin Walsh, USCG; edited by PACM P.J. Capelotti, USCGR

Editor’s Note By PACM P.J. Capelotti, USCGR This report was originally three distinct documents all written by Quentin R. Walsh. The first two, comprising the bulk of the report, were the volumes Walsh wrote immediately after returning from Antarctica on board the whaling factory ship Ulysses. The third document is a shorter, more general history of whaling that Walsh wrote in later years, which incorporated much of his earlier experiences on Ulysses.
