Mass. Maritime Accademy honor Lt. Robert Rowe

Mass. Maritime Academy display for Lt. Robert Rowe
Robert Rowe, Lieut.

Lt. Robert Rowe, Navigator of the USS Mississinewa (AO-59), was a 1931 graduate of the Massachusetts Maritime Academy. His daughter, Jan Tracy, was kind enough to share a photo of a display recently created at the academy honoring her late father.

Lt. Rowe was severely burned when the ship sank. He succumbed to the burns on 3 Dec 1944 aboard the hospital ship, USS Samaritan (AH-10).

(The Massachusetts Maritime Academy (, founded in 1891, is a highly ranked institution that prepares future maritime professionals.)

Thank you, Jan.
