1946 - One of my favorite photos of the Reese collection. This is Ensign Glenn C Bartoo and the photo was taken during a North Atlantic weather patrol. Notice the large chunks of ice in the water surrounding SEBAGO. Mr. Bartoo died in 2002. He was an University of Chicago alumnus that in his later years was a ham radio operator. He had worked many years in prison administration.
Mr. Bartoo's widow informed me this photo was taken just after SEBAGO completed an assistance mission to free a Danish vessel from pack ice in the far North Atlantic.
