Nautical Charts and Narrative: HelenClay Chace Collection

These charts and narrative were donated by HelenClay Chace. The belonged to her husband, Minturn V. Chace, who also wrote the included narrative of a sailing trip through the Gulf of Alaska. Their Harvard classmate, David Rockefeller Jr. organized sailing trips across the globe. Mr. Rockefeller charted several boats for about 6 weeks at a time. He'd lease the boats on a weekly basis to friends, like Mr. Chace. Those friends would skipper the boats and invite along another 6 friends as crew. Onshore sightseeing and galas were part of the adventures. The trips included Gulf of Alaska in 1991, Hebrides, Scotland in 2001, and Sardinia, Italy in 2006.
