Dear Mr. Contrades,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
The U.S. Merchant Marine Academy has the Story of the Battle Standard on their website. The American Merchant Marine Museum and the Maritime Administration History Program may be able to give your further assistance.
We hope this information is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
Thank you for the links to the AMMM and MA History Program. I am aware of the content of the Academy's website, but it is a short overview with not much detail (I'm working on a journal article). Prior to coming on History Hub I connected with the curator of the Academy's museum and he related they do not have much more on the Standard's history, but was trying to find points of contact and sources for the questions I passed him (keeping my fingers crossed).
