Captain Harold D. Huycke, Jr. was a maritime historian of the Pacific Coast. He was the author of many articles and the book,
"To Santa Rosalia: Further and Back" (1970), a detailed history of a dozen German sailing ships detained in Mexico during
the First World War. In 1957, he was employed by the state of California to prepare, man and deliver the C.A. THAYER from
Puget Sound to San Francisco, and she is now one of the San Francisco National Historical Park's historic vessels moored at
Hyde Street Pier. Huycke was a research associate of the San Francisco Maritime Museum for 57 years and conducted hundreds
of oral histories with seafaring men and some of their relatives to help document West Coast maritime history.
