USS Pampanito

Artifact and Document Donor Honor Roll

This page attempts to collect together the names of some of the many donors of equipment, manuals and historic documents to USS Pampanito. Our many donors to projects at San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park are gratefully recognized elsewhere.

This page does not include the very many groups and individuals that have helped us by providing in-kind services, donating money, or selling us equipment and documentation we needed (frequently at below market prices). It also does not include the many people that have gone out of their way to help us with advice and leads that are the backbone of our effort. We really appreciate everyone's help in locating and supplying the equipment and documentation that enables restoration of USS Pampanito.

We apologize if we have missed your donation in this list, please send me a note and it will be corrected.
