The two and a half year expedition, then unique in the history of scientific research, was sent by the Cleveland (Ohio) Museum of Natural History, its object being not only to collect animal and bird life among the remote islands of the South Atlantic and Indian oceans but also to fix the location of some obscure islands (such as Bouvet Island) whose location still remained in dispute. The three-masted schooner, formerly the ""Lucy R"" of Nova Scotia, had been renamed in honour of Mrs Elizabeth Bingham Blossom of Cleveland who had provided much of the funding. Setting sail from New London in October 1923, the original crew of sixteen under the command of Capt. George Finlay Simmons consisted largely of young American college students, over 700 having applied for the cruise when it was advertised. All but four of the original crew dropped out during the course of the voyage, most on arrival at Dakar after passing by Cape Verde, and further replacements had to be obtained whilst refitting in Rio de Janeiro, after which the schooner turned south, visiting Saint Helena and other islands before eventually returning to Charleston in June 1926. The results of the expedition were substantial and impressive, bringing back about 13,000 specimens for further study and discovering two previously uncharted islands off the coast of Brazil and a new species of rail in Africa. Capt. Simmons subsequently took up the position of Curator of Ornithology at the Cleveland Museum. Photo.
