Affray

I

(AMc-112: dp. 205; 1. 89'6"; b. 24'4"; dr. 10'9", s. 10.0 k.; cpl. 17 a. 2 .50-car. mg.; cl. Acme)

The first Affray (AMc-112)-a wooden-hulled, coastal minesweeper built in 1941 at Tacoma, Wash., by the Tacoma Boat Building Co.—was acquired by the Navy late in 1941 and was placed in service on 2 December 1941, Lt. R. I. Thieme, USNR, in command.

Though she may have performed some duty at Seattle initially Affray spent the bulk of her active career at Kodiak, Alaska. Her war diary does not begin until 1 July 1942, and, by that time, the warship was already at Kodiak conducting sweeps for mines and making other patrols on a daily basis. She remained so occupied throughout World War II. Affray returned to Seattle in mid-October of 1945 and began preparations for inactivation. She was placed out of service on 10 December 1945, and her name was struck from the Navy list on 3 January 1946. On 23 march 1946, she was sold back to her former owners.


Meet Archivist Becky Fullerton, Keeper of Nearly 150 Years of AMC History

When AMC staff have questions about the club’s storied history, they call Becky Fullerton. Fullerton is AMC’s archivist, a role in which she manages the club’s more than 140 years of historical documents, books, and memorabilia for AMC’s Library & Archives. Fullerton was born in Vermont but grew up in Southern New Hampshire. She received a BA in art history and studio art from Hartwick College in Oneonta, N.Y., before completing an MA in museum studies from Harvard’s extension school. Originally thinking she’d curate works of art for a museum, Fullerton began working with AMC in 1999 at a seasonal job in AMC’s huts and became the organization’s archivist in 2005. We sat down with Becky, virtually, to hear how the history buff approaches her work.

Walk us through a day in the life of an archivist.

Most people have no idea what an archivist really does, and no two days are exactly the same, which I love. But basically, my main priority is taking care of the entire historical collection that AMC has everything from the very first meeting minutes when we formed the club back in 1876 to digital files made this year. I’m here to collect that stuff, maintain it, preserve it, and eventually, hand it off to some other archivist. There’s also a public-facing aspect to the job, where I’m answering questions that people ask about our history. A typical day starts with checking my voicemail and email inbox. For example, I had a volunteer and member email me about the history of the club in terms of race, which was a super relevant question—especially today.

How did you answer the volunteer’s question about AMC’s racial and inclusion history?

Though we never had any explicitly discriminatory regulations for membership, there were certainly implicit biases within the way the club was initially set up. There was a time in the club’s history where you had to have two people sponsor your membership. And there was also a $2 dues fee and that would have been a barrier, and then of course, you had to live in New England—so there were these typical, systemic, built-in things. Today, we recognize that the club’s history may have been inherently biased for membership. And it was just part of the culture in a way at that time. It’s really interesting looking into our history through that lens. That being said, AMC formed post-Civil War, so we had a lot of abolitionists, a lot of women suffragists. But by that measure you can look into our history and find members who were known to be anti-Semitic, or known to be part of the eugenics movement, so you know, it’s a really tangled web of history.

What is your favorite part of the job?

I think it’s being the caretaker and steward of all of this history and the fact that I’m the only person that gets to do this job that makes it feel so special. Many archivists work alone there’s a joke where we call ourselves the “lone arrangers.” But I love having this very parental feeling toward our collection. Like, it’s yours to protect and take care of you’re adding to it and watching it grow, and that’s your job as long as you’re there to do it. You make sure people know and love the collection as much as you do, kind of holding it up to the light.

You have 144 years of AMC history at your disposal. What’s the strangest or most interesting piece of our history that you’ve come across?

I am examining this box of what are called summit registers. What they are, basically, is the old paper notebooks that would have been placed in a glass bottle or another kind of airtight container at the summits of various mountains. We have about 24 of these that date back to 1858. My favorite is this register from Mount Pierce (at that time known as Mount Clinton) from 1900, when two hikers named Curtis and Ormsbee from New York City were on their way to Mount Washington. They were climbing the Crawford Path on June 30 and were overtaken by bad weather. Curtis made a bid to go to the summit and find help, but they didn’t make it. When help came, they found this little bottle at the peak of Mount Clinton, so Curtis and Ormsbee did make it to the peak, but the register was the last time they put pencil to paper. So, kind of creepy, but very interesting.

What do you wish more people knew about AMC and its history?

I would want people to be aware that we weren’t conservationists right off the bat. We often say that we’re the oldest conservation club, but that isn’t exactly true. I think, when AMC was first founded, we hadn’t really discovered the concept. I don’t think at the time that conservation was much of a movement. Prior to the late 19 th century, AMC was really just a bunch of people who enjoyed the outdoors, enjoyed hiking. However, the earliest members were a lot of academics, etymologists, mathematicians, and linguists, but I just don’t think anyone really came around to the idea of preserving natural areas for a while. I’d like to give people kind of a cursory awareness of AMC’s evolving history—that it started out as just a very practical hiking club until well after the turn of the century.

Do you find that you look at outdoor recreation and environmental concerns with a more historical perspective because of your work?

Oh, absolutely. Every time I go for a hike I want to know when was this trail cut, who were the trail builders here. Last year, I was doing some trail running on Mount Hale, which was named after Rev. Edward Everett Hale, and there’s this trail on the back side of that called Lend-A-Hand Trail, which was the name of a newsletter that Hale started. The trail name ties back into the name of the mountain which ties back into the person. A person on [activity tracking application] Strava named a segment of trail “Man without a Country,” which I thought was so cool, because, of course, “Man Without a Country” was a story written by Rev. Hale. It’s so interesting to trace the history behind the trail you’re on.

What is your favorite outdoor activity?

I love trail running because the quicker pace allows you to get farther out into wild places in a day. However, I’ve been a hiker most of my life, and I appreciate the chance to move slowly through nature and to deeply see and feel every part of the trail and environment.

AMC’s 150 th anniversary is coming up in 2026. Are you working on any archival projects to mark that milestone?

Our 150th anniversary is a big deal, and it is never too early to think about how we are going to mark the occasion. I know from past anniversaries that AMC’s Library & Archives need to be prepared to field a huge variety of requests from inside and outside AMC, for every audience that wants to tell our story. I’ve started to make a concentrated effort to gather source material on the many threads of our history into kind of a giant topical file. As 2026 draws closer, AMC will have a rich collection of raw materials with which we can write about, plan activities and presentations for, and celebrate our accomplishments. I’ve heard there were some pretty great things done for our 125th anniversary in 2001, and I hope we’re able to pull out all the stops for this next milestone.

The AMC I6

If there is an engine that has a more storied history and lasting fanbase in American off-roading, it must be the AMC I6. From Baja to the King of the Hammers, you won&rsquot find any other engine that&rsquos powering more Jeeps right now. Well, besides the GM LS or Chevrolet Small Block. That&rsquos a topic for another day, but let&rsquos talk more about the same straight-six that was used by the four owners of Jeep: AMC, Renault Alliance, Chrysler, and DiamlerChrysler.

The Flathead

The AMC I6 didn&rsquot start out as the 4.0-liter overhead valve (OHV) many of us know best today. Instead, it was a flathead I6 that had a displacement of 172.6-CI (2.8-liters) when it first came out in 1952 but would eventually reach 195.6-CI (3.2-liters) before a major redesign in 1956. The flathead would disappear until 1958 when it came back with the new Rambler American and used as an &ldquoeconomy engine.&rdquo

Overhead Valve

That 1956 redesign mentioned earlier turned it into an OHV engine design that we&rsquore more familiar with. This also moved the water pump from the left side and using a drive shaft off the generator to in front of the timing chain cover and driven by the accessory belt drive.

Dependability

All AMC I6s gained a reputation of durability and dependability as it used a forged crankshaft and connecting rods. These parts made these engines tough and could work though anything, however the flathead would overheat under sustained heavy loads. This was typical of any flathead engine of the era due to its exhaust port design.

The change from flathead to the OHV didn&rsquot change its dependability, but it did come with a cost of added maintenance. The 196 OHV engines require head bolt torque checks at 4,000-miles and retorquing every 8,000-miles.

Aluminum Block I6

In 1961, there was also an aluminum version of the AMC I6. It kept its durability by using cast-iron cylinder liners along with a cast-iron head. It would only be made until 1964. As great as it would be to do it, the aluminum head from the cast-iron block engine won&rsquot work on the aluminum block engine. The aluminum block engine&rsquos head is about 1/8-inch wider and uses a different bolt pattern.

Even with the different head design, owners would still need to check the head bolt torque in the same intervals as the iron block. There is the added concern that the cast-iron liners would shift if the torque isn&rsquot kept in check and the engine allowed to overheat. This, along with the short timeframe they were made, also makes finding good heads and blocks for the aluminum engine a difficult task.

The &ldquoModern&rdquo AMC I6

What&rsquos considered the modern AMC straight-six began production in 1964 with the 232-CI (3.8-liters) Torque Command I6. It was a short-stroke engine with seven main bearings on the crankshaft rather than four of the 196. It &ndash the 196 &ndash would eventually be replaced by the 199-CI (3.3-liters) I6 in 1966.

The blocks of the 199 and 232 were both the same and had a 3.75-inch bore. The difference was in the stroke with a three-inch stroke on the 199 and a 3.5-inch stroke in the 232. However, the 199 would be replaced by the 232 as the small engine. The 258-CI (4.2-liters) with its 3.895-inch stroke and taller deck block appeared as the bigger engine choice. Unfortunately, it would eventually stop being sold due to the increase in emissions controls by 1979 while the 232 would be forced into smaller and smaller cars as both emissions and safety regulations made vehicles heavier and less powerful.

The 258

In 1971, an undersquare version of the AMC I6 came out as the 258-CI (4.2-liter). It featured the 3.75-inch bore and a 3.895-inch stroke, which made it undersquare. The 199 and 232 are both oversquare with larger bores than strokes. The 258 would remain carbureted until around 1980 to 1982 when it gained the AMC Computerized Engine Control (CEC).

1981 it gained lightweight parts such as the aluminum intake manifold and a plastic rocker arm cover. Its biggest change and weight savings came from the crankshaft. It went from 12 counterweights to four which reduced the engine&rsquos weight by 20-pounds alone.

Mexican AMC I6s

Intertwined with the American produced AMC straight-sixes were two engines built by their Mexican subsidiary, Vehiculos Automotores Mexicanos (VAM). The VAM engines were made for their cars and were usually rebranded AMC vehicles like the VAM Gremlin (AMC Spirit), VAM Classic (AMC Matador), VAM American (AMC Rebel), and others. Theses were the 252 (4.1-liter) &ndash a 3.91-inch bore version of the 232 &ndash and the 282 (4.6-liter) &ndash a 3.917-inch bore version of the 258.

The 252 produced 170-horsepower (gross horsepower, mind you, as they were still using that rating system until 1979 instead of using SAE net ratings) with 240-lb-ft of torque while the 282 would produce 200-GHP/280-torque in 1971 to 1973, 132-NHP (net horsepower)/216-torque in 1979 to 1981, 172-NHP/225-torque 1980 to 1981, and finally 129-NHP/218-torque in 1982 to 1983 engines.

The 4.0

It took only 26 months for AMC to develop the engine that YJ, XJ, ZJ, WJ, and TJ owners covet (well, unless there was a V8 model choice). It was the 242-CI or the 4.0. It would weight about a pound more than the 258 despite using lighter materials used. However, most of this was out of a need to make it as robust as possible &ndash like using 15 bolts to secure the aluminum valve cover.

The 4.0 used a 3.875-inch bore with a 3.414 stroke but used the 6.125-inch connecting rod length like the 199. It was such a good engine from the start that it was the only engine retained by Chrysler when it finally bought out AMC.

This is the better-known six-cylinder engine that most XJ Cherokee buyers look for or plan on swapping in later. You can&rsquot blame them. 1987 to 1990 engines produced 177-horsepower but put out 224-lb-ft of torque out of the box, later models from 1991 to 2006 would produce 190-horsepower and 225- to 235-lb-ft of torque.


USS Anaqua

USS Anaqua was an Ailanthus -class net laying ship which served with the United States Navy in the Western Pacific Theater of Operations during World War II. She served the U.S. Pacific Fleet with her protective anti-submarine nets, and returned home safely after the war.

2.2. World War II service Assigned to the western Pacific
On 11 March, Anaqua again stood out to sea and arrived back at Tiburon safely and took on a load of amphibious gear before sailing for Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. During her voyage across the eastern Pacific, the ship experienced several steering engine failures. She reached Pearl Harbor on 26 March, unloaded her net gear, and entered a drydock at the Pearl Harbor Navy Yard where, in addition to repair of her steering system, her hull was re-caulked to eliminate persistent leaks.
Anaqua resumed operations late in May, took on a cargo, and, on 25 May, sailed for the Mariana Islands. After a brief stop en route at Eniwetok, the net tender reached Guam on 16 June, discharged her cargo, and then proceeded to Tinian to lay gasoline tanker moorings. She completed this job on 22 June and sailed on to Ulithi. She arrived there on the 26th and spent the next four months in the lagoon of that atoll maintaining anti-torpedo nets in conjunction with five other net tenders. This duty was interrupted briefly by a trip to Yap Island following the surrender of Japan to load Japanese ordnance gear for transportation back to Ulithi.

2.3. World War II service End-of-war operations
Following her return to the atoll, Anaqua assisted in closing down the large fleet anchorage at Ulithi. The vessel helped remove 20 miles 32 km of anti-torpedo net. This salvage work was completed by 17 October, when she headed home with a barge in tow. The ship paused at Saipan to unload nets being transported by the barge and then proceeded to Hawaii. During this passage, rough seas and inclement weather slowed her progress, and Anaqua headed for Midway Islands to refuel. The vessel finally reached Pearl Harbor on 12 November.
The net tender left Hawaii on the 16th and reached San Diego, California, on 25 November. Shortly thereafter, she sailed to San Pedro, California, where preparations to deactivate the ship began.

Our History

By 1910, the Women’s Auxiliary had grown to more than 120 members and had established itself as a strong force in the humane movement separate from the ASPCA. On May 12, 1910, Auxiliary members officially separated when they incorporated themselves as the New York Women’s League for Animals. Meanwhile, the number of animals needing treatment at the Lower East Side clinic was increasing significantly each year. It was decided that the newly-founded New York Women’s League for Animals would raise the funds for a permanent animal hospital that would be better staffed and equipped to treat more animals.

The new animal hospital opened in 1914, just down the street from the original clinic’s location. The hospital was a new, three-story building equipped with offices, an examination room, a reception room, an emergency room for horses, operating rooms, a padded stall for horses, isolation wards, quarters for birds, and apartments for resident veterinarian, Dr. Bruce Blair, and his assistants. By 1920, the hospital was treating well over 9,000 patients annually.

The hospital faced difficult times through the 20s and 30s, beginning in 1921 when founder and president, Ellin Prince Speyer, passed away. The Great Depression caused an explosion of sick and abandoned animals, as well as a rise in owners who could no longer afford to pay for their pet’s care and treatment. The League rose to this challenge, even increasing its service to the public through tight budgets.

In 1946, the end of wartime shortages and price restrictions sparked a post-war inflation that hit the League hard. Despite its pressing finances, the League continued to advance in several new areas. The hospital benefited from new advances made in human and veterinary science, such as the discovery of powerful antibiotics like penicillin, and the development of vaccines for distemper and rabies. The League also implemented a mobile animal clinic in 1951 to supplement the work of the hospital. The mobile clinic rode through different neighborhoods treating the pets of the poor and teaching them about proper animal care.

In 1954, the League proposed to create an institute for veterinary studies. The institute would take the League’s mandate a step further by exploring the causes of animal disease and developing possible treatments. Thanks to the contribution of late League Director Margaret M. Caspary’s husband, it looked like the institute would become a reality. With the new Caspary Institute, the animal hospital evolved into a veterinary medical center of national stature. In 1959, the League voted to change the name to the Animal Medical Center, and thus the modern-day AMC was born.

In January 1960, construction began on a new 4 million dollar facility for the Animal Medical Center on 62nd Street, just west of the East River. In 1962, the new building — which featured state-of-the-art laboratories, operating suites, and sophisticated medical equipment — threw its doors open to an expectant public, beginning a new era in veterinary medicine.

1960-1970

Throughout the 60s and 70s, AMC launched many new initiatives, including an intensive internship and residency program, a medical and surgical team concept that concentrated the energy and talent of several veterinarians on difficult cases, and an emergency medical service clinic open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. AMC also greatly increased the size of its staff by increasing the number of vets from 20 to 70, hiring more animal nurses, initiating an animal aides program, and bringing in scores of attending physicians and veterinary consultants.

By the 1980s, AMC had begun to set itself apart as an institute of higher learning as well. In 1983, AMC launched an intensive postgraduate course in clinical veterinary medicine. It also began to sponsor regular lectures and seminars, as well as clinical training programs for senior veterinary students, visiting veterinarians, and animal health technicians.

1980-1990

Throughout the 80s and 90s, AMC continued to grow its reputation as a leader in veterinary care by utilizing the latest medical technology, offering more specialized services and programs, and performing cutting-edge procedures.

1990-2000

Throughout the 90s, AMC set itself apart as a leader in oncology research and treatment. The oncology department introduced Strontium-90 plesiotherapy for the treatment of superficial tumors and a canine melanoma vaccine developed with Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.

2000-2010

Over this time period, AMC added several pieces of groundbreaking technology. A linear accelerator enabled the radiation oncology staff to deliver radiation treatments in the fastest and most precise manner possible. The addition of a new Interventional Radiology (IR) and Interventional Endoscopy (IE) program offered new, state-of-the-art diagnostic and therapeutic capabilities.

2010-Today

Today, AMC is the largest non-profit animal hospital in the world, treating 54,000 patients a year. A leader in compassionate care, research, and education, AMC currently runs the most prestigious post-graduate training program in veterinary medicine, and our clinical trials and research constantly seek to advance veterinary care. With more than 100 doctors across 20 specialties, AMC is poised to lead the way in veterinary care for the next 100 years!

From its humble beginnings in the mind of Ellin Prince Speyer to the world’s largest hospital for small animals, AMC has successfully positioned itself as a leading center for research, clinical advances, and veterinary medicine.

The beginning

Jeep was born out of the American Army’s need for a vehicle that could replace both the horse and the motorcycle as a general-purpose form of transportation. In fact, one of the popular theories about the origin of the Jeep name posits that it comes from GP, an acronym for general purpose. Others point to Eugene the Jeep, a character from the Popeye comic strip. Wherever it came from, the name stuck.

The off-roader was developed by the American Bantam Car Company of Butler, Pennsylvania. It started out making licensed copies of British-built Austin cars. By 1940, when the government began a bidding process for a small, four-wheel drive military vehicle, the company was down on its luck.

American Bantam cobbled together a prototype that exceeded the Army’s design parameters. Officials were concerned about the tiny automaker’s ability to build the quantity of vehicles it needed, so they contracted Willys-Overland and, later, Ford to build what became the Jeep. Ford literally tried to put its own stamp on the Jeep design by branding as many parts as it could with an “F” to differentiate the Jeeps it made from those made by Willys. After the war, it was Willys that retained the rights to the design and tried to give the Jeep a second life as a civilian.
