  • Biographical Information

    Frederick (Fred) M. Hendrickson (also referred to as “Spike” by classmates) was a 1903 graduate of the New York Nautical School (now SUNY Maritime College). At that time there was no shore-side campus, and all education was carried out on the ST. MARY'S schoolship. In 1903 Hendrickson sailed to France and Ireland on the ship. After graduating on October 6, 1903 at age 18, Hendrickson transferred as a cadet to the SS PHILADELPHIA bound for Southampton, England. However, in 1905 he gave up his seafaring career due to health reasons. As of 1912 he was a salesman with the National Bridge Works in New York City. Hendrickson was a resident of the Springfield section of Queens County.
