Scope and content

Photograph showing four U. S. Navy servicemen with Albina Engine & Machine Works electrician Ed Mabie (right) during an award ceremony on Saturday, February 20, 1943. Mabie and three of the servicemen are holding up an Army-Navy “E” Award pennant with two stars. The event was held to present Albina Engine with the two-star pennant, which denoted that the shipbuilder had maintained a record of outstanding war production for a year after first receiving the E award. Mabie accepted the pennant as the representative of the Albina workers. A cropped version of this photograph was published in the Oregon Journal on Sunday, February 21, 1943. It had the following caption: “TWO-STAR E PENNANT for Albina Engine & Machine works was presented Saturday to yard workers by battle veterans of the navy. From left, [Commander Leland D. Whitgrove], Machinist Mates Russell H. Jones Jr., William D. Langston and Edward F. Fox, and Ed Mabie, yard electrician.” Whitgrove was cropped out of the published photograph.
