Lee Richardson, Ensign, US Navy by Ken Evans
Lee was born in San Francisco’s Lane Hospital (now known as Children’s Hospital) in 1929. His father was Chief Engineer of the Matson Line; his mother owned a restaurant. He had one younger brother. He attended Tamalpais High School but left after one year to join the Merchant Marine.
After training at the Maritime College of New York, Lee signed on as a third assistant engineer aboard the Clarksdale Victory cargo ship which was contracted with The Army Transportation Corps. While he was on shore leave, in 1947 the vessel ran aground in Canada’s Queen Charlotte Islands, broke in two, and sank with only three survivors.
