Default Commodore Alexanderson..R.I.P.

Rear Admiral Leroy J. Alexanderson (USNR), Commodore of U.S. Lines and the last master of the SS United States, passed away in Hampton, VA on Saturday morning at the age of 93. He will be missed by those of us who knew of his storied career, and for all who are interested in the history of the U. S. cruising industry.

You can find more information at the following website:
