Looking for any documentation that might include the full name of the captain (master) of this merchant vessel in March of 1968. From a UPI news release dated 4 March 1968, the captain's name is listed as JOHN E. PARKER. I have not been able to locate a merchant mariner with that exact naming convention. Suspect newspaper article may have listed his name incorrectly.
The deck logs would be extremely helpful, but any documentation with the captain's signature element would be great.
Thanks, Cliff Sjolund Jr
