Q. My dad was on the Mendota from 1944 until 1961, does anyone have any pictures of the crew of this time period, also pics of the ship at sea? Thank you in advance, please send to jim.dennison694@gmail.com.

A. Jennifer Daugherty, senior librarian in the North Carolina Room at the New Hanover County Public Library’s main branch, said she was unable to locate any such photos. She said you’re welcome to come in and search some of their archives.

If you visit google.com, type “coast guard mendota” into the search field, and then click on Images, you’ll find a number of photos of the ship. However, few of them depict the crew.

If any readers can help this gentleman, email him or let us know in the Comments section below.
