Captain MacLean was my Grand Uncle.
He was dearly loved by his nieces and nephews and visited my grandfather in
Spokane, WA in 1924. He died at age 86 in 1943.
Thank you for your
information, I may contact Cunard also, as this was who Captain MacLean sailed
for during most of his career. Who knows, I may find something interesting! If
it pertains to the Tuscania, I'll share it with you.
I have no pictures of
Captain MacLean dressed as a captain or on board any of the ships he sailed but
I do have photos of him riding elephants on a tiger hunt in India. From
pictures, I know that Captain MacLean was a smallish man.
Captain MacLean was a Scotsman,
which accounts for the "Mac." The Irish newspapers used a spelling I hadn't seen
before. I know very little about him so it was strangely exciting to read about
the Tuscania on your web site.
