MS15 - Ships' Papers Collection
Collection Overview: Arranged alphabetically by ship, these papers include bills of sale, insurance policies, surveys of loss, crew lists, cargo inventories, wages, supplies and lay transfers.

Historical Note: Nantucket Island, until the early 20th century, had always relied on ships for her survival. During the whaling era, great sailing ships traversed the oceans in search of whales. When whaling became unprofitable, many ship owners refitted their ships to carry cargo and passengers on trans-ocean voyages or, during the gold rush, to California. “Coasters” sailed along the Eastern seaboard moving freight from one port to another including Nantucket. These “Coasters” provided food, fuel and other necessities for the Island. Beginning in the early 19th century, Nantucket was also serviced by steamboats. Steamers provided a daily connecting lifeline bringing passengers, mail and other goods from the mainland.
