I met Hugh and Dorothy Robinson in the early sixties. He was a wonderful person and friend, and will be sorely missed.

I did not know Hugh, however I noted he sailed for AMERICAN EXPORT LINE about the same time I did. He graduated Fort Schuyler, I graduated Maine Maritime and immediately sailed with AEL.

I pulled out an old Deck Officer Crew list from that area and see Hough sailed as Jr. Third Mate on the SS EXCELSIOR with J. Marchant as Skipper.

I was on the SS INDEPENDENCE for 3.5 years, then later sailed with Marchant on freighters.
