MARINE ART NEWS The Essex Historical Society and Shipbuilding Museum acquired the Thomas Hoyne Research Collection in summer 2003, a donation by his widow Doris 0 . Hoyne. It has been processed and is now access ible to the public for research. It includes Hoyne's photographic collection wi th hundreds of historic maritime prints. Hoyne's paintings of Gloucester fishi ng schooners led him to research his craft using models by Erik A. R. Ronnberg, Jr., and he scoured private collections and museums for historic prints. Hoyne died in 1989 at the age of 65 .

CORRIGENDA In our coverage of the 10th Annual Coos Bay Maritime An Exhibit in the autumn issue of Sea History (1 05), we mistakenly printed the article and artwork without crediting the writer and anise. Natalie Olson provided the written coverage. Marine Artist Louis Stephen Gadal offered the use of his painting (below), "Seaworthy No. I, S. F" (watercolor, 28" x 20"). T he subject of the painting is the San Francisco fishing boat docks next to Fisherman's wharf. - DO'R
