Name of creator
The Vincent A. White was a tern schooner built in Alma, New Brunswick in 1918 and registered in Parrsboro, Nova Scotia. She was launched on August 7, 1918 and assigned flag call TNLC. By the 1920s she was well known as a rum runner. Her name was changed to Estonia in 1926 and her port of registry to Lunenburg. In 1935 the Estonia sailed from Turk’s Island, West Indies and encountered a heavy storm, losing her sails and rudder, and was abandoned in a sinking condition.
The item was accessioned by Dalhousie University Archives in 1971. Prior to that, the item was in the custody of Mr. and Mrs. Murray Oikle of Bridgewater, Nova Scotia.
