Notes: USCGC KATHERINE WALKER was the second 175’ Keeper Class buoy tender built and commissioned for the United States Coast Guard. She was built by Marinette Marine in Wisconsin and accepted by the Coast Guard in 1996. KATHERINE WALKER’s namesake was keeper of Robbins Reef Light in New York Harbor. Katherine’s husband, John was appointed keeper of the light in 1883. In 1886, John died from pneumonia. Katherine Walker was then appointed as keeper of the light by President Benjamin Harrison on June 6th 1895. The task was not an easy one for the 4’10”, 100 pound woman. She climbed to the top of the light several times each night to tend the kerosene lamp. During periods of fog or heavy snow she would ring the fog signal by hand for hours on end when the mechanical system failed. During storms, she not only ensured the light was “watching properly”, she also kept a sharp lookout for ships in distress. Her efforts resulted in the rescue of 50 sailors from shipwrecks. Among those rescued were five crewmen and a small dog from a wrecked schooner. Katherine accomplished this rescue using only a small dinghy. Despite all the hardships she managed to raise two children. Robbins Reef Light was isolated from the mainland, so Katherine would row her children to and from the shore daily so they could attend school. She stayed on as keeper until she retired in 1919 and moved to Tompkinville, New York. She passed away at age 83 on February 5th, 1931.

Notes: USCGC Storis [WAGL-38; WAG-38; WAGB-38; WMEC-38]; U.S. Coast Guard utility icebreaker STORIS during the run for a short-cut Northwest Passage prepares to send helicopters aloft on ice reconnaissance before proceeding eastward through Amundsen Gulf to Dolphin and Union Straits Canadian Northwest Territory (July 23 1957). Arctic ice conditions were reported worst in many years at this time of year. The STORIS with Coast Guard ships SPAR and BRAMBLE on September 6 1957 became the first deep draft vessels to complete transit of Ballot Strait from west to east. (The Canadian icebreaker LABRADOR made the first passage from east to west on August 24th.) This historical discovery realized a centuries-old dream of a short-cut Northwest Passage for deep draft tin-skinned cargo vessels to traverse between the Pacific and the Atlantic. Homeport of the STORIS is at Juneau, Alaska."; no photo number; 12 September 1957; photographer unknown. Although modeled after the 180s, Storis, was in fact a larger tender. She was originally designed as a supply ship for Allied bases in Greenland. Since that time she has served in a variety of roles and as mentioned above taken part in a number of historic ventures. As of 2000, she was designated as a medium endurance cutter and her hull numbers were painted in gold in honor of being the oldest cutter in the fleet.
