Books & Sources

The National Archives in Washington, D.C., as well as many newspapers from 1924, provided most of the information on the Wyoming crew members and events that happened after the loss of this great ship. 

However, I found there are many great books about the Wyoming and what life was like during the era of the coastal schooners.  The following books are a few of the ones that were helpful in my search.  I also have listed the location where most of the books and documents can be found.
